Program Overview

Program Description:
Charles University's Master's in International Security Studies is a two-year, fully accredited, English-language Master's degree programme, which offers students a complex guide through security, conflict and strategic studies in the context of international relations. The programme focuses on European and transatlantic aspects of security and defence policies, regional contexts of security and conflicts, as well as specific issues of human or energy security.

The core of the Master in International Security Studies programme is formed by three required modules which introduce the students to basic concepts of security and conflict studies and their practical application. The first is the lecture Introduction to Security and Conflict Studies, accompanied by a group of elective. The second major module consists of the lecture Security and Defence Integration in Europe with two elective seminars. The third module is composed of the lecture Applying Security Concepts in International Politics and a dedicated Seminar in Security Concepts.

Graduates of the programme are prepared to pursuer careers in security-related posts in government offices and public administration, international organizations, NGOs and transnational corporations. Some might also like to pursue a doctorate and an academic career.
Setting Description:
Our programme promotes a progressive approach to teaching that includes reducing class sizes and an emphasis on seminars. Our instructors aim to conduct their classes through presentations, discussions or simulations incorporating student participation. This logically requires thorough preparation on the part of the student outside the class through extensive reading of the course texts. Our goal is to streamline the teaching process through actively involving the students in class and making it possible for them to present their opinions on and understandings of the material.
Cost:
Tuition fees for the Master in International Security Studies programme i are set at 3,000 Euro per semester, payable at the start of each semester. Please note that these fees cover only the cost of instruction and examinations, and that students are responsible for paying their own living expenses (food, lodging, etc.). Although we have no immediate plans to increase our fees, we reserve the right to do so, should circumstances warrant it. Students will be given advance notice of any changes.
