Overview

The International Relations - Security Studies program from Anglo-American University (AAU), Prague is delivered by a faculty of experts from all over the world that bring years of professional experience to the classroom. This program enables students to fully experience the cultural dynamism of Central Europe. Students can expect to gain a solid background in international relations and political theory, history, philosophy, nationalism, or security.

Critical security studies are not limited to violence only but cover also issues pertaining to use and misuse of power, justice and citizen’s rights. 

Upon completion, our students acquire the ability to critically examine and address the international/intercultural challenges of our time, such as global inequalities, economic dependency, conflict and security, or globalization including the evolving roles of organizations such as the United Nations, NATO and the European Union.
