The History and Area Studies (Has) programme at Charles University connects qualified modern history and area expertise with excellent language preparation. It is organized and executed by the Institute of International Studies (IIS) in cooperation with the Institute for Language and Preparatory Studies of the Charles University.
After completion of HAS, the graduates will be endowed by a solid knowledge of contemporary Central European history and culture as well as by the Czech language at a B2 level. They will be able to analyse individual topics arising within the Central European region in terms of modern history, political science, international relations, and culture. The HAS graduates will be able to understand current issues in their historical, societal, political, and cultural context. Mastering Czech language, they will be capable of reflecting local debate and local perspectives on global level.
They will be able to employ the language as well as the acquired knowledge in an everyday use and to develop and cultivate them in the continuing study in the field of humanities and social sciences or in the professional field of the state administration, cultural institutions, NGOs or media.
