About the Institute of Political Science, University of Warsaw


The Institute of Political Science, University of Warsaw, as one of the first academic centres in Poland, decided to launch a new field of study – Internal Security.

It was the answer to the growing demand for the theoretical knowledge and its practical use in the area of internal security and public order. The Institute of Political Science provides educational opportunities at both undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.

The educational profile is the answer to the demand for both the knowledge as well as the practical preparation in the area of national security and public order. The Institute of Political Science provides educational opportunities at the first- and second-cycle (full-, part-time and extramural) studies as well as it offers numerous postgraduate programmes.

Improving its educational offer, the Institute of Political Science decided to start a new and unique Graduate Programme in Security Studies (GPSS) which are addressed to persons with a Bachelor’s degree awarded upon completion of a Bachelor’s degree program (undergraduate studies) in Poland or elsewhere. They are second-cycle full-time graduate studies (2 years). The language of tuition is English.

The study programme covers both theoretical (such as Theory of security) and practical (f.ex. Emergency management) courses. Apart from the regular courses our students are also invited to take part in the academic life by participating in events such as: conferences, debates, lectures of guests from all over the world and numerous social events.

The course lasts two years. In order to receive the Masters’s degree, the graduates will be required to write a Masters’s thesis and pass all the exams.
