Programme description:

International Relations is a programme for those who wish to combine a thirst for knowledge with personal development while also creating opportunities for attractive future employment. We offer interdisciplinary study aimed especially at people interested in the world around them and the processes shaping it. International relations are activities, processes, and events of a transborder nature, which means they are not contained within states’ borders. Nowadays, globalization and integration processes require that anyone involved in pol­itics, business, culture, or social life be familiar with international relations. Therefore, the demand for academic knowledge of the subject is increasing, which translates into good prospects for attractive employment. Among the numerous work possibilities available for our graduates are diplomacy, international trade, international projects, and international organizations.

In order to meet the growing demand for specialists in international relations, the Faculty of Political Science at Maria Curie-Skłodowska University has launched a 2-year full-time English-language MA programme in International Re­lations. Due to the fact that the entire programme is conducted in English, stu­dents will be able to master their language skills and enrich their vocabulary with specialist terminology while expanding their knowledge of international rela­tions. The programme is designed for both Polish and foreign students who wish to probe the problem of international relations, especially in the context of Central and Eastern European relations.

Our development is in line with students’ expectations – we are open to students’ and graduates’ suggestions. Answering students’ needs, we are planning to expand our programme by introducing language courses in Central and Eastern Europe languages.

The programme has a unique content. The syllabus combines study of general issues in modern international relations with detailed studies of Central and Eastern Europe that include both historical background and contemporary social, political, economic, and cultural issues. This region has witnessed profound socio-economic changes and is rapidly gaining importance in modern international relations.


  • Economic Diplomacy
  • International Relations in East - Central Europe
  • International Place Branding

We do care about our graduates’ future. We have started cooperation with partner universities. We are striving to provide our students with prestige diplomas from two universities.
