Doctoral International and European studies

The study programme of these doctoral studies encompasses two elective fields: International Politics (including the courses in global relations, international law, international security and peace studies) and European studies. This division is aimed at enabling students to choose studies of one of the two most important aspects of international action of our country, and therefore meet the social demands for the top quality experts and scientists capable for performing the most complex tasks in these fields of social life.

During the first year of studies students are enabled to choose some of the courses from other PhD studies at the Faculty as well, in order to independently influence the profiling of their ultimate knowledge, by combining their more narrow orientation with the academic disciplines of political sciences considered as beneficial or necessary for quality performance of practical tasks.

The aim of the research seminar, courses in theoretical-research approaches and the doctoral seminar is to introduce the students of this – the highest – educational cycle with the most comprehensive and concrete knowledge and skills necessary for independent or team scientific-research work, primarily in the purpose of research and writing their PhD theses which will, as their first scientific contribution, prove their capacity for future academic and professional work.

This study programme was accredited in 2015.
