The B.A. in Political Science: Extended Major program at Anglo-American University is offered by the School of International Relations & Diplomacy and aims to give its graduates tools to explain and understand the complexities of our era.
The curriculum offers a balanced mix of courses on political and international relations theory, philosophy, economy and history which is complemented by a range of skills-oriented courses in writing and research or classes increasing proficiency in foreign languages.
Students learn about how political processes and institutions function and affect societies and individuals beginning with theoretical profile courses that instruct students on categories of regimes and governmental systems, types of electoral systems, and heterogeneous voting trends.
The curriculum then offers students instruction on both U.S. and European political institutions as well as on political economy and conflict resolution. Together, the core courses offered in the program enable students to develop a broad understanding of the nature of political change as instruction is not limited to one regional or temporal context.
Students are also required to learn about the conceptual intricacies associated with both qualitative and quantitative methodologies and to demonstrate how analytical concepts can inform our analyses of political phenomena.
Beyond the classroom you can join student clubs like Diplomacy or Model UN, practice your debate skills at a faculty-student debate or discuss current political issues with professors and local experts at an event like ‘Professors in the Pub’.
AAU’s Career Center also connects students with numerous professional internships in the Czech Republic and abroad every year.
