Public Policy and Security

Being overwhelmed by many security issues in public policy, it is more important than ever to understand this dynamic process, to be able to assess emerging risks, threats, and their management mechanisms. A successful experience in organising political study programmes has allowed the formation of an open and competent team of lecturers and scientists, whose arranged programme provides students with the necessary analytical tools and prepares the experts for the 21st century challenges.

Studies without boundaries – 90 % of study modules are organised online.

In the face of the pandemic we have gotten a chance to prove that we are ready to share our knowledge virtually without sacrificing quality or professionalism. This programme is where we apply our best practices and solutions so you could learn in a way that works for you.
