The 2010-11 academic year marked the beginning of the Polish-French double degree programme, which is jointly run by the Institute of European Studies JU and the Institut d'Etudes Politiques at the University of Strasbourg. These are two outstanding institutions which both have a widely renowned reputation in the field of European Studies.
The double degree is a two-year programme. The first year takes place at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow (IE). Selected students follow a course of studies particular to European Studies, and all courses are run in English (core courses, specialisations and electives). However, if the student so desires, he or she is able to take courses in Polish (electives only).
The second year of studies takes place at the University of Strasbourg (IEP). The programme is an integral part of the Master in "Politiques européennes", and offers lectures and seminars that deal with European issues as well as Franco-Polish relations. In order to fill these requirements, lecturers are not only members of academic staff, but also experts and practitioners in the field of European issues and Franco-Polish relations.
The fourth semester is dedicated to the writing of the MA thesis (in French or English) and sitting the thesis defence. Additionally, the student may also choose to do an internship at this time.
Students who successfully finish the programme receive the two following degrees:
- Master Politiques européennes in the discipline of Sciences politiques et sociales at the University of Strasbourg.
- Master of European Studies from the Jagiellonian University
