Who we are

Founded by Ernest Gellner, this is one of the few programs in the world solely dedicated to the study of nationalism, including migration, ethnic conflict, prejudice, self-determination, populism, minority protection and language and citizenship rights. By fostering critical and cross-discipline approaches, our international faculty bring together a wide spectrum of expertise, such as political science, history, sociology, international relations, anthropology, social theory and legal studies. You will receive advanced methodological training in applied social sciences and benefit from research opportunities, conferences and lectures, as well as field trips and study visits. 

What we offer

Providing a thorough theoretical and methodological grounding, our program will help you develop a critical understanding of nationalism, as well as hands-on, transferable skills. Our extensive curriculum is continually evolving to reflect new realities. With the rise of populist politics in Europe and North America, for instance, we launched a new course, ‘Populism, Neonationalism and Deglobalization’ to delve into the latest manifestations of national populism. You will also have the chance to investigate problems of nationalism in the context of economic and political transition in post-1989 Eastern and Southeastern Europe, with a comparative outlook on regime transitions across the globe.

The two-year degree is primarily for graduates with a three-year bachelor’s degree.

Where your degree will take you

Graduates of the program find employment in education and research fields, business entities, foundations and advocacy groups, government institutions and international organizations.
