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.
