Recommended Study Plan

The following study plan is meant to help students enrolled in the Conflict and Democracy Studies program make effective choices of courses so that they can earn  the required number of credits. It specifies the sequence of compulsory courses that is deemed to be the most effective study plan for students enrolled in the program. The sequence of optional courses is not specified.

 The recommended study plan  ensures that students  earn 120 credits at the end of the program (92 credits in compulsory CDSn40XX courses and 28 credits in optional courses – of these  up to 8 credits may be gained for non-CDSn41XX or non-POLn41XX / non-POLn61XX / non-BSSn41XX courses). In each of the first three semesters, students should take four compulsory courses (specified in the table below) and two optional courses. In the fourth semester, students are advised to register for the Thesis Writing Seminar and focus on completing their Master’s thesis.

Should you have any queries, please, contact dr. Miriam Matejova.
