Master in International Security Studies (MISS)

Master in International Security Studies (MISS)

This programme responds to the pressing agendas of the current security environment and offers students a complex guide through security, conflict and strategic studies. The programme respects the multidisciplinary dimension of contemporary security studies that face analytical challenges in traditional as well as non-traditional domains. Therefore, students will obtain theoretical and methodological training allowing them to address security issues ranging from conventional conflicts and wars to unconventional agendas associated with cyber or space realms. Graduates of the programme are prepared to pursue careers in security-related posts in government offices and public administration, intelligence agencies, international organizations, NGOs, etc.

The programme offers a double degree option in cooperation with the prestigious Department of political science and public administration at the University of Konstanz. Thus, the selected students have the opportunity to obtain the master's degree in Politics and Public Administration from the University of Konstanz, in addition to the master's degree in International Relations from Charles University. Applicants for the double degree programme are selected, based on merit, after the first semester of their studies.
