The study program is primarily designated for the graduates with a Master’s degree in Political Science or any other field of Social Sciences who intend to deepen their knowledge in Political Science, focusing on the issue of democratic and nondemocratic forms of government (changes in political systems, with a special emphasis on development trends connected with modernization and democratization, other issues of comparative analysis, including national and regional identities, or the analysis of individual elements of political systems).
The aim of our program is to train highly qualified experts who are able to pursue basic and applied research in academic institutions and universities. They will likewise be ready to work in the Czech public sector (especially in government agencies) and to represent Czech interests in the international arena, particularly at the EU level. Embracing a wide array of methodologies and subjects in its sweeping compass, our doctoral program in Political Science provides our graduates with comprehensive professional skills both in theory and practice.
