International Economic and Political Studies (IEPS)

"The large course catalogue really gives you the possibility to make the program your own."

"We are living a global life already, as teachers and students of this program, and we learn from each other."
Janusz Salamon
IEPS Lecturer

This program investigates contemporary political, economic and social issues from a multidisciplinary perspective. It is based on the Oxford-style “PPE”. Although the emphasis in IEPS is placed on economics and political science, you will also be expected to explore their philosophical, historical, legal and sociological aspects.

The nature of the program is highly flexible and allows you to specialize in economics, politics, or philosophy. IEPS aims to enhance the ways of critical thinking and understanding of social, economic and political phenomena in globalised societies. You will deal with the nature of economic objectives of agents, social organisation, institutions of power, the emergence of conflicts and efforts for cooperation.

As a graduate of this program, you will master the principles of modern non-conventional economic thinking and you will be able to apply them in political decision-making at the level of supra-national institutions, states, regional governments, corporations, firms, political parties and civic societies.

Within this program, you will also have an option of obtaining a double degree from Charles University and the University of Bayreuth in Germany.
