Overview of the programme and majors:

Second-degree studies in International Studies in Political Science and Diplomacy are a new proposal in the offer of the University of Silesia. The main aim of the course is to prepare graduates for professional work in international institutions and organisations, European institutions, diplomatic and consular posts, government administration and civil service.

The studies are focused on ensuring that the student, upon graduation, has the highest level of competence to work independently in responsible positions. The program was written to allow the student to continue his/her education at the National School of Public Administration or the diplomatic and consular application. Perfectly qualified scientific and didactic staff, external experts, visits to international institutions and state administration - all of this will help the graduates power, after completing their studies, Polish and foreign public administration units and diplomatic representations. The studies are conducted in two languages: Polish and English (English at the B2 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages of the Council of Europe). The curriculum also includes obligatory classes in French and Spanish, starting from the primary level.

Career prospects:

The main goal of the studies is to prepare graduates for work in government administration, the civil service and, above all, in Polish diplomatic missions, international institutions and organisations, including European ones.
