What are Area studies

Area studies aim to summarize the general issues of political, cultural, historical, economic, legal and social aspects of the development of selected territories. North America, Western Europe, German-speaking countries, Central-Eastern Europe, the Balkans and the post-Soviet space are the main geographic and geopolitical structures that are being researched. Students have the opportunity to come across many disciplines and fields of science from contemporary history, current political and social events, international relations to collective memory and oral history.
