Politics, Philosophy and Society

With the rapid rise of political populism, conspiracy theories, fake news, and propaganda around the world, political sciences face new challenges that require a deeper understanding of the complex issues at hand.

These studies aim to empower societies and their individuals to understand and address these challenges. Critical thinking, complex problem-solving skills, generating new ideas, leadership, and effective communication are among the most needed competences for the future workforce that will enable students to be attractive in the labour market, and not only in the field of political science.

The programme, combining three core disciplines of social sciences and humanities, allows graduates to gain knowledge of politics, philosophy and sociology. The graduates are able to analyse social phenomena, to effectively apply qualitative and quantitative data analysis methods and tools, and to analyse and compare political and social processes and trends in an integrated way.
