About Political Science: Conflict and Democracy Studies at Anglo American University

The B.A. in Political Science: Conflict and Democracy Studies program at Anglo-American University is taught by faculty that received training from European, British, and American institutions – bringing many years of dynamic professional experience to the classroom.

This program instructs students through a range of comparative approaches to the study of conflict outcomes and democratic systems of governance. It specifically instructs students on the nature of different forms of conflict including conflict between states, within states, and sub-national conflict.

Students will learn about the determinants of conflict onset, duration, and resolution. Likewise, they will study the different strategies of collective action that can be observed in contexts featuring both nonviolent dissent and political violence (including civil war and stages of radicalization), along with how these strategic processes influence empirical trends of democratization.

The Conflict and Democracy Studies concentration draws from scientific literature found in top political science and international relations journals to teach students about the most recent theoretical and empirical trends on democratic backsliding, individual and group based forms of radicalization, and humanitarian intervention, including conflict resolution. Together, these topics will provide students with a thorough overview of the interplay between democratic institutions and conflict.

Upon completion, our students will acquire an ability to develop logically coherent arguments on conflict and democracy; synthesize different literatures pertaining to specific research questions and outcomes; draw on popularly used data sets to inform their qualitative assessment of single or multi-country cases; understand the trends inherent to the outbreak and duration of different forms of conflict.

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.

What students think about Anglo American University

    Ann Connolly, Business Administration, United States of America

    Testimonial from Ann Connolly, Business Administration, United States of America, student at Anglo American University

    We do almost all of our projects in small international teams, and we work together like we would in a business company and synergize our different ideas. There's flexibilities to meet with teachers outside of class, and ask them questions, not just specifically things we learn in the class.

    Benjamin Rodenburg, International Relations & Diplomacy, Fiji

    Testimonial from Benjamin Rodenburg, International Relations & Diplomacy, Fiji, student at Anglo American University

    With the American WASC accreditation, the multitude of exchange options, and being in the heart of Europe, AAU was an easy choice for me. Despite its small size AAU is a hot pot of language and culture that poses nothing but benefit when engaging in discussion in or out of the classroom.

    Katherine Dedukh, Journalism & Media, Ukraine/Estonia

    Testimonial from Katherine Dedukh, Journalism & Media, Ukraine/Estonia, student at Anglo American University

    AAU is more than a university, it’s a very special community that helps create special bonds with teachers and classmates. It doesn’t put you into the box but rather teaches you to be yourself and choose your own path. It gives you just enough autonomy and support to achieve your goals.
