South-East European Studies is a programme in the Humanities field with an emphasis on the history of South-East Europe. The education in Humanities is one of the oldest and most essential academic fields worldwide, and the problems of politics, economy, religion, historical demography and culture of this field are some of the most relevant and discussed in our times.
