The mission of the School of Political and Social Sciences is to produce talented specialists with fundamental knowledge and the methodological, empirical and analytical skills necessary for study in the field. We prepare students for productive roles in society and for carrying out effective professional activity.

The curriculum analyses important questions and academic debates in political philosophy, comparative politics, democratisation, political economy, electoral behavior, political parties, elitism, political sociology and human rights- with each equally contributing to different scientific theories and views.
