The 21st century is rapidly evolving into a world governed by regional and global geopolitical issues, and international developments are playing a dominant role in the way states, societies and citizens interact. This means that domestic and transnational politics, economics or social aspects are quickly merging into a single concept, and it is upon this new foundation that citizens, governments, businesses, and international organizations will communicate in this new era.

For these reasons, the School of International Relations  at UNYP offers a modern curriculum to understand the world in which we are living. The program focuses on providing students with a strong foundation in political, economic, and international relations theory and practice. The goal of the program is to prepare students to think theoretically and analytically about our globalized world, while using modern technology and ethical thinking to solve problems in a multicultural environment. This four-year degree is awarded by State University of New York, Empire State College. All UNYP programs are taught entirely in English.

Graduates of the International Relations from University of New York in Prague will acquire the following skills:

  • A solid theoretical foundation in economics, including the micro foundations of economic thought and macro issues facing nation states, comparative politics and international relations;
  • A thorough understanding of the politics, history and diplomacy that preceded the 21st century;
  • Enhanced ability to think theoretically and analytically about contemporary issues in international affairs;
