European Politics and Society - Václav Havel Joint Master Programme

European Politics and Society

European Politics and Society – Václav Havel Joint Master Programme is a multidisciplinary two-year Erasmus Mundus Joint Master degree linking the fields of European politics, contemporary history and culture, economy, international relations and policymaking. The key role of the programme is to identify and analyse challenges Europe faces today (migration, security, populism). The first semester of the EPS Programme is based on Master level introductory courses (in Prague), the second semester focuses on EU related courses (Krakow, Leiden). In the third and fourth semesters, the programme offers four different study tracks reflecting the diverse expertise of the Consortium members (Prague, Krakow, Barcelona, and Leiden). Each track combines various elective courses, research methods training, an internship and language tuition with an advanced research dissertation supervised by key staff from each Partner University. Being the Joint Master Degree, the EPS students receive, after successful graduation, a joint diploma together with a joint diploma supplement issued by Charles University and valid in all four countries of the EPS consortium (Czech Republic, Netherlands, Poland, and Spain).
