Integrated European Studies

Integrated European Studies (IES) is an interdisciplinary Bachelor's study programme examining radical changes in Europe before and after 1989 from a social and cultural science perspective.

The main focus of the study programme lies on the analysis of the political, economic, social, cultural and historical factors past and present responsible for division within Europe before 1989. Transformation processes in Eastern and Central Europe in the 20th and 21st centuries are also examined in detail. Students are expected to attend Russian or Polish language courses.

Students may choose to specialise in European Studies from either a social or cultural science perspective. The Research Centre for East European Studies offers a unique archive of sources on opposition in Eastern and Central Europe for research and as a foundation for work in History, Cultural Studies and Politics.
