Undergraduate Programme in Political Science is addressed primarily to high school graduates.

The Programme is fee-paying.

The language of instruction is English.

The courses in the study programme are both theoretical (aimed at developing theoretical knowledge of political science issues, including courses preparing students to do research) as well as practical. The Programme includes mandatory courses and electives. The latter enables students to develop their individual interests in the course of studies. Particular emphasis is placed on issues related to European integration, as well as Poland and Central and Eastern Europe.

Our students, besides regular courses, actively participate in the academic life by being members of various political science associations; presenting at conferences, taking part in debates and lectures of distinguished guests from all over the world visiting our university. Social events are also important in students’ every day lives. The knowledge and skills developed during the studies allow them to win scholarships and awards in different competitions, e.g. for the best foreign students in Poland.

The programme has 6 semesters (3 years).

Classes are held from Monday to Friday from 8:00-20:00, mainly at the University of Warsaw Main Campus, Krakowskie Przedmieście St.


The graduates of the Undergraduate Programme in Political Science will acquire qualifications necessary for analysing political problems and issues. Thanks to skill building activities provided during courses, they will be well trained in the art of communication, negotiation and persuasion. In order to receive a Bachelor’s degree, the graduates will be required to write the BA thesis and pass the diploma exam.
