The mission of the Department of International Relations is to become a creative space for thinking and responding to the challenges and opportunities of connectivity in international relations, foreign policy, diplomacy and the European Union (by exploring the intersection between its past, present, and future trajectories). Our students get familiar with current developments in IR and the most important decision-making procedures in diplomacy, and the European Union through practical examples, including professional events and study tours.
The Department manages the bachelor's and master's degree programs in International Relations, as well as the 'Economic Diplomacy' specialization of the International Business Economics bachelor's degree program. The lecturers of the Department have many years of professional practical and diplomatic experience. In addition, they also carry out scientific research, and are engaged in advising, and consulting activities. The most important research area of the department is the analysis of current political, economic and social developments in Central Europe, Central and East Asia.
