The European Politics and Society (EPS): Vaclav Havel Joint Master Programme is a multidisciplinary two-year Joint Master Degree Programme linking the fields of European politics, contemporary history and culture, economy, international relations and policymaking. The key role of the programme is to identify and analyse challenges Europe faces today (migration, security, populism). The first semester of the EPS Programme is based on Master level introductory courses (in Prague); the second semester focuses on EU related courses (Krakow, Leiden). In the third and fourth semesters, the programme offers four different study tracks reflecting the diverse expertise of the Consortium members (Prague, Krakow, Barcelona, and Leiden). Each track combines various elective courses, research methods training, an internship and language tuition with an advanced research dissertation supervised by key staff from each Partner University.
The Programme is run by a Consortium of four European Universities:
- Charles University in Prague (Czech Republic)
- Jagiellonian University In Krakow (Poland)
- Leiden University (The Netherlands)
- The Pompeu Fabra University (Spain)
The EPS Programme has a large network of Associate Partners that constitute a valuable platform both in the academic as well as professional sense. Among EPS Associate Partners, three institutions/organizations play a special role: Yerevan State University (Armenia), Europaeum (Oxford, United Kingdom) and TEPSA (Brussels, Belgium). Together with Václav Havel related organizations (Václav Havel Library and Fórum 2000) they represent key Associate Partners of the EPS Programme. More details.
