Politics and Society
Short presentation of the programme:
What is an individual? What is society? What is civilization? What is justice? Why do we have states and political parties? How can we thrive in the 21st century?
Politics and Society addresses these, and other connected issues, in a modern setting with up-to-date methods of interactive teaching with a pronounced practical bent. The first two years' study encompasses practical and general lecture courses in the fields of Politics, Society, Governance and International Relations, interlinking with disciplines such as sociology, social anthropology and economics. During the third and fourth years, the education process is organized around more narrowly profiled courses and practice-oriented educational forms.
The Program is conducted exclusively in English. Our key lecturers include both known scholars from the academic world, who have also lectured in Europe and the USA, and practitioners from the real world of politics such as former and present Prime Ministers, Ministers, party leaders, ambassadors, political advisors and military leaders.
