International Relations


The Department of International Relations (Katedra mezinárodních vztahů, KMV) offers two-year Master's degree programme in International Relations both in the Czech (Mezinárodní vztahy, MV) and English (Master in International Relations, MAIN) versions. The programme provides students with the knowledge and analytical skills to understand the international context of politics, economy, and security. The tensions among major powers, such as the United States, China, the European Union and its members, or Russia, are on the rise. At the same time, the world is growing ever more inter-connected. Major political decisions, influencing our everyday lives, are made not only by individual states, domestically, but increasingly also internationally and by regional as well as global institutions.


Our programme helps students understand how international and European politics work, and what are the challenges faced by states, as well as business, NGOs and individuals, in the globalized world. Within an inter-disciplinary framework, students learn about the key points of contestation in world politics, but also about the functioning of the European Union and of the key global institutions. They study how international conflicts can be productively transformed into cooperation. In addition to providing students with a robust background in international and European politics, the programme puts an emphasis on the development of students’ analytical capabilities and critical thinking. Thanks to the broad scope of competences students acquire and deepen during their studies, our graduates become highly valued experts in national administrations and diplomacy, European and international institutions, but also businesses, NGOs, media and, some of them, in academia.


Relevant information about programme International Relations is available at the Faculty website.


Academic Supervisor of the programme is doc. PhDr. Jan Karlas, MA., Ph.D.

Coordinator for students is Mgr. Viera Martinková (Knutelská), Ph.D.
