Description

Programme description:

International Relations is a programme for those who wish to combine a thirst for knowledge with personal development while also creating opportunities for attractive future employment. We offer interdisciplinary study aimed especially at people interested in the world around them and the processes shaping it. International relations are activities, processes, and events of a transborder nature, which means they are not contained within states’ borders. Nowadays, globalization and integration processes require that anyone involved in pol­itics, business, culture, or social life be familiar with international relations. Therefore, the demand for academic knowledge of the subject is increasing, which translates into good prospects for attractive employment. Among the numerous work possibilities available for our graduates are diplomacy, international trade, international projects, and international organizations.

In order to meet the growing demand for specialists in international relations, the Faculty of Political Science at Maria Curie-Skłodowska University has launched a 2-year full-time English-language MA programme in International Re­lations. Due to the fact that the entire programme is conducted in English, stu­dents will be able to master their language skills and enrich their vocabulary with specialist terminology while expanding their knowledge of international rela­tions. The programme is designed for both Polish and foreign students who wish to probe the problem of international relations, especially in the context of Central and Eastern European relations.

Our development is in line with students’ expectations – we are open to students’ and graduates’ suggestions. Answering students’ needs, we are planning to expand our programme by introducing language courses in Central and Eastern Europe languages.

The programme has a unique content. The syllabus combines study of general issues in modern international relations with detailed studies of Central and Eastern Europe that include both historical background and contemporary social, political, economic, and cultural issues. This region has witnessed profound socio-economic changes and is rapidly gaining importance in modern international relations.

Specializations:

  • Economic Diplomacy
  • International Relations in East - Central Europe
  • International Place Branding

We do care about our graduates’ future. We have started cooperation with partner universities. We are striving to provide our students with prestige diplomas from two universities.

DOCUMENTS REQUIRED FOR ADMISSIONS

International candidates submit the following documents:

1. Candidate’s application form.

2. Personal questionnaire generated from the Internet Recruitment System.

3. Confirmation that the applicant has a fluent command of English language.

4. Original/duplicate of certificate of secondary education (in the case of applying for bachelor studies) or original/duplicate of bachelor diploma (in the case of applying for 2nd degree master studies) as well as a recognition certificate issued by a Board of Education in Lublin or any other board of education adequate for the place of residence of the person applying for the recognition certificate.

ATTENTION: Consulate of the Republic of Poland residing in a country in which the candidate's certificate of secondary education was issued must legalise the documents in order to make their recognition in Poland possible. If the candidate's certificate of secondary education was issued in a country which is a party of the Hague Convention of 5 October 1961, the legalisation process is performed in a form of apostille located on or enclosed to the document. According to a proper international treaty, if a foreign certificate of secondary education may be accepted as equivalent to Polish certificate of secondary education, the recognition is not required. In this case, it is sufficient to provide the certificate with apostille affixed thereto. International Baccalaureate Diplomas (IB) as well as European Baccalaureate Diplomas (EB) are equivalent to Polish certificate of secondary education. In this case, the recognition process is not required. The recognition of university graduation diplomas is performed by a council of a basic organisational UMCS unit, authorised to grant doctorate degree.

5. Insurance policy, European Health Insurance Card or the candidate's obligation to join a health insurance in National Health Fund. Immediately after starting education at UMCS.

According to repatriation regulations, a foreigner of Polish origin can be insured by UMCS.
