We live in a time of rapid changes that have transformed the traditional understanding of societal relations and our interactions with others. Our local, regional, national, and continental environments have changed, and our societies are more open than ever. At the same time, these transformations have caused the rise of movements that oppose or promote deeper changes. This is an exciting period in our history when it comes to political and social transformations: the expansion of democracy, the fight for the survival of authoritarian leaders and governments, the emergence of religious fundamentalism, the proliferation of populist movements, the strengthening of international collaboration and integration, the victory of global capitalism – all of these things are taking place around us, and have a deep impact in our lives.
The Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science program at the University of New York in Prague analyses the complex world in which we are living and provides students with the tools and skills they need to understand our societies. The program blends the European and American traditions in Political Science to present a program that looks at current developments, combining a solid theoretical understanding with a practical view of the main challenges faced by our societies.

"The University of New York in Prague is an international school which has really widened my view of world. I came to Prague with great expectations for a beautiful city where the past coexists with the present. As an exchange student at the University of New York in Prague, I was able to take various types of courses that interested me, and communicate with students from many different countries. It was a great opportunity for me to understand a different and unique culture, especially when doing team projects. I visited many new places in Prague with the friends I made working on the team project, and I will never forget my experiences. I would like to thank Sook-Myung University in Korea and the University of New York in Prague. I hope more students will choose the great education and international experience of the University of New York in Prague."

"When choosing a city in which to study abroad, there were many options, but one was a clear cut above the rest – Prague. Not only would I get a chance to immerse myself in one of the richest cultures in Europe, but I would be provided with an opportunity to continue my classes at a top-notch school, the University of New York in Prague. If anyone is considering an exchange program, without question, I recommend making your way to the Czech Republic."
