About Central and East European Studies: Visegrad in Contact and Conflict with East Europe
The bachelors program in Central and East European Studies: Visegrad in Contact and Conflict with East Europe is a part of the School of International Relations and Diplomacy. The program provides a multifaceted perspective on the geographical territory of Visegrad in contact and conflict with Eastern Europe, reveals the countries’ identities, historical boundaries and political formations in relation to one another. It also acknowledges social and ethnic groups that inhabit both regions. It offers an interdisciplinary education in Central and East European history, anthropology, politics and security, as well as media, arts, culture and intellectual history.
The program is taught in English with elective discussion seminars in Russian in 14 of the program’s courses. The inclusion of a language component creates opportunities for students to learn a range of Central and East European languages including Czech, German, Polish and Russian.
Graduates are in a position to accept a range of employment opportunities in multiple fields, especially where knowledge of Central and East European issues and outstanding language skills are an asset: government and business administration at local, national and international levels, media and publishing, cultural diplomacy and management and tourism.
“AAU is a truly unique university.I like how international it is and how it enables students to get to know other cultures more closely and learn to be more open and tolerant. This is the case especially with Central and East European Studies, a program which concentrates on the political, economic and socio-cultural role of Central and Eastern Europe. It allows students to learn how the peoples of the region have affected one another in the past, and also to learn more about that relationship in the present.” Ekaterina Chernysheva (Russia)
