The European Politics and Economics programme is addressed to students interested in economic and political integration, the functioning of the European Union, EU law and the EU internal market, particularly with respect to the economy, finance and detailed policy. The programme covers the structure, competences and activities of the European Union, its impact on Member States, and the mutual relations between them.

A unique feature of the programme is that it is run jointly by two faculties at Warsaw University: the Faculty of Political Science and International Studies and the Faculty of Economic Sciences. Due to this cooperation, the programme emphasises economic premises and the consequences of European integration. This well-developed economic component clearly differentiates this programme from other European studies programmes offered in Poland. The entire programme is conducted in English.

Students of the European Politics and Economics programme are given the opportunity to learn from distinguished Europeanists, political scientists, economists and lawyers, both theoreticians and practitioners. The teaching staff includes lecturers who have worked in government ministries, think tanks, foreign institutions, the media, and business. The programme covers the reasons for and the course of European integration, in terms of economics, politics, institutions and the law. Students learn about the successive stages in the process of integration, analyse historical texts (political speeches, declarations, acts of law) as well as trade databases, examine various conceptions of EU development, and forecast and interpret the opportunities, challenges and threats the EU faces. They are also encouraged to critically evaluate the political and economic consequences of European integration, and to take part in the ongoing debate over the final form of a united Europe and the Union’s territorial limits.

Students also acquire knowledge on international economics, the functioning of trade, and on international capital, labour and currency markets. They are introduced to the processes of currency and economic integration in the EU, and the impact these have on private and public entities. Students participate in workshop-type lessons, simulations of the work of EU institutions, Oxford-style debates, and round tables. A variety of audiovisual tools are used in class (Survey Monkey, Kahoot, Playfacilte, Wordart.com, Prezi, Bookcreator, etc.).

Employment prospects

Graduates of the programme come out with basic knowledge on the functioning of the various and multifaceted spheres of European politics, which enables them to: understand the dynamics of political, economic, legal and social changes at the national and supranational levels; work out decision-making strategies; and analyse the positions, approaches and conduct of participants in integration processes, as well as the mutual relations among them and their interactions with other entities (stakeholders) in social and economic life.

Graduates are also knowledgeable about the economic aspects of the functioning of the European Union and the implementation of EU policies. The programme provides an interdisciplinary education combining elements from the social, economic and legal sciences in the area of European studies.

The programme prepares people both substantively and linguistically to conduct business activity on the EU market, and to work in lobbying or consulting firms, in public administration at the government and local government levels, as officials of EU institutions or agencies or in international structures, in non-governmental organisations, in the media, and in cultural institutions active in European marketing.

About the Faculty

The Faculty of Political Science and International Studies is the oldest and largest political science center in Poland. For many years, the fields of study run by WNPiSM have been awarded the title of the best in Poland (e.g. in the Perspektywy ranking).
