The key role of the European Politics and Society (EPS) programme at Charles University is to identify and analyse challenges Europe faces today (migration, security, populism). The first semester of EPS is based on Master level introductory courses (in Prague); the second semester focuses on EU related courses (Krakow, Leiden).
In the third and fourth semesters, the programme offers four different study tracks reflecting the diverse expertise of the Consortium members (Prague, Krakow, Barcelona, and Leiden). Each track combines various elective courses, research methods training, an internship and language tuition with an advanced research dissertation supervised by key staff from each Partner University.
The EPS programme gives its students the possibility to acquire high-profile pluridisciplinary knowledge and skills. The first goal of the EPS programme is to prepare a new generation of managers, policymakers and research leaders.
The excellence of the programme is based on a central focus on the societal, political, economic and cultural processes that have formed contemporary Europe and its role in the international environment, the programme also fosters exchange among diverse European and non-European cultures, and offers a unique learning experience to both EU and non-EU students. EPS thus contributes to build a real trans-European community of students, experts and academia that deal with current European challenges.
