Central and Eastern European Studies (International Relations)
The CEE region politically, economically and culturally links Western Europe, including such key organisations as the EU and NATO, with dynamic Eurasia. This vibrant region still seeks its recognition in international relations. Accordingly, the multidimensional curriculum devoted to this part of the world fills the existing gap in university programmes. Our studies investigate the CEE region’s reality and provide you with up to date knowledge, as well as skills necessary to deal with region’s conditions including bureaucratic and legal obstacles when launching a business. Besides, hardly any other place would better suit studying Central and Eastern European matters than Collegium Civitas, a university located in the centre of Warsaw, the geopolitical heart of the region.

Central & Eastern European Studies (CEES) is a study programme aimed at people (such as students, entrepreneurs, investors, and migrants) who want to gain a wide range of skills to function in the cultural and business environment of Poland and other countries of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). The curriculum covers not only culture, history and economics, but also practical information on current laws and legal procedures operating in Poland, other CEE countries and the European Union. Students will be able to learn the practical aspects of international cooperation at various levels of administration including local authorities, government ministries, executive agencies and chambers of commerce. This programme of study comprises classes in various forms that enable students to acquire unrivalled skills, thereby providing them with a competitive advantage in the labour market.
This degree is particularly suitable for people with a solid grounding in world history and geography. It targets those who are interested in working in Central and Eastern Europe.
CEES students graduate with extensive knowledge of the cultural and business conditions in Poland and other countries of Central and Eastern Europe as well as the ability to work effectively in multicultural environments. Successful CEES graduates are able to master a European language to communicate effectively and to function in the Polish labour market dynamically, either by running their own businesses in Poland or by finding employment in companies, institutions and non-governmental organizations in CEE countries.

CEES is tailored to the current needs of the Polish labour market that is experiencing demographic changes both at home and abroad.
