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. Since 2012, these studies have gained a practical profile, due to which they are also a response to the need of improving professional qualifications of officers of different state services (e.g. police, border guard).
The educational profile is the answer to the demand for both the knowledge as well as the practical preparation in the sphere of national security and public order maintenance. 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. Our students apart from regular courses could take part actively in the academic life, taking part in such events as: conferences, debates and lectures of distinguished guests from all over the world invited often by our University as well as 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 the examination.
