Balkan, Eurasian and Central European Studies (BECES)
The program focuses on modern history, politics, and diplomacy, as well as fundamentally social, cultural and economic problems of a territory composed of Central Europe, the Balkan Peninsula, and the post-Soviet area, including the Caucasus and Central Asia. You can choose from two specializations: Balkan and Central European Studies or Russian and Eurasian Studies. The program will allow you to understand the interplay between politics, society, culture and economy of the “East.”
As a student of BECES, you can study many languages that are connected to the region, from Greek through Russian to Polish or Czech.
After completing the program, you can become a regional expert on a specific territory. You may join NGOs, state administration, media or the business sector.
BECES is open to students who meet the general admission requirements and have completed a Bachelor or equivalent degree in area studies, history, political science, or combinations of these programs with languages, geography, economics, social sciences etc.
