Balkan, Eurasian and Central European Studies

A two-year interdisciplinary Master’s Degree Programme
at Charles University

The application process for the next academic year 2019/2020 will be open on the 1st of November.


This programme offers the students with its two specializations 1) Russian and Eurasian Studies and 2) Balkan and Central European Studies a deep and versatile exploration of “the East”, understood as a territory composed of Central Europe, the Balkan Peninsula, and the Post- Soviet area, including the Caucasus and Central Asia. The programme focuses on modern history, politics and diplomacy, as well as on fundamental social, cultural and economic problems of the chosen area. It also offers students the chance to learn or improve their knowledge of chosen regional language (e.q. Czech, German, Russian, Polish, Hungarian, Serbian/Croatian, Albanian, Greek, Romanian, Bulgarian etc..). The programme is deliberately structured to take advantage of the multidisciplinary nature of the Faculty, and students will be encouraged to make connections between different fields of study, learning to combine a global perspective with attention to detail and local interests.
