Course Profile

The speciality is focused on theories and practices of functioning of European states, regional and local entities of public life, self-government, economic and political entities, non-governmental organizations, social movements and the media. Students will get an opportunity to analyse factors influencing the dynamics of state, regional and local development. They will also develop skills, which will enable creation of strategies and evaluation in the sphere of public and social life. Students will learn about the political systems of European countries, their determinants and political mechanisms. They also get acquainted with the factors that create political cultures. A separate research area is also the characteristics of the European Union as a whole, its institutions and ways of acting. During the course students will learn how stereotypes and historical-political myths in European societies are being created and how they can influence public life. This should provide the graduate with a critical attitude. In the course of the classes students will try to create electoral slogans in order to reach a particular electorate.
