Modern world, modern conflicts

A master’s degree in Conflict and Democracy Studies focuses on the discussion
of the variety of potential relationships between democracy (and its quality), authoritarianism, totalitarianism, democratisation, and conflict. You will dive deep into the conflicts of personal freedom versus the security of an individual and society, the role of homeland security in the process of democratisation and how failures
in that process can pave the way for totalitarianism.

The programme makes you perceptive and analytical, allowing you to see problems highlighted above from different perspectives. The theoretical knowledge and practical skills you acquire enable you to see the bigger picture, thus preparing you to tackle the contemporary problems and conflicts of the world.

Practical training

Putting emphasis on the practical side of the matter, the programme allows for
an optional practical training: a placement in a governmental or non-governmental institution. Masaryk University and the Faculty of Social Studies cooperate closely with a number of partners, letting you choose any placement from a state agency through an NGO to a think-tank to train your skills.

Graduate profile: Call it a ceasefire

Graduating from Conflict and Democracy Studies, you are a trained and skilled expert in the area of international relations and political science which opens doors to many professional paths.
