We are pleased to promote MA in Geopolitical Studies at Charles University, Prague

Geopolitical Studies is a two-year-long multidisciplinary programme offering students a chance to learn from renowned academics and experts. The programme primarily focuses on geopolitical analysis and includes aspects of international relations theory and international law.

Specifically, it focuses on how the interactions between world politics and geography have unfolded in the most relevant geopolitical settings. The programme allows the students to gain a profound knowledge of geopolitics and geostrategy, two disciplines becoming ever more important. The mandatory courses provide the necessary theoretical background, while the electives enable the students to choose their thematic and regional specialisation according to their preferences. Some of the areas that the specialised courses and modules focus on include:

• World politics, great powers geopolitics, global power shifts, border hardening;
• Disintegration processes, failed states, violent non-state actors, unrecognised states;
• War, natural resources and conflicts, international law;
• Political risk analysis, foreign policy analysis;
• World regions and their position in the current global order.

Students will be introduced to the key concepts and theories and the methodology and approaches to conducting proper research in this field. Simulation and practical exercises are also employed to enable the students to apply the knowledge gained to solve problems, which could occur in real-world scenarios.
