Political science

Katedra politológie bola založená v roku 1990 ako prvé vedecko­pedagogické politologické pracovisko na Slovensku. V súčasnosti ponúka plne akreditované programy v prvom bakalárskom (Bc.), druhom magisterskom (Mgr.) a doktorskom (PhDr.) i treťom doktorandskom (PhD.) stupni vysokoškolského štúdia. Na katedre je možné získať komplexné politologické vzdelanie s orientáciou v takých disciplínach, ako sú politický systém Slovenska, komparatívna politológia, európska integrácia a medzinárodné vzťahy, teórie a metódy spoločenskovedného výskumu a dejiny politického myslenia. Katedra taktiež ponúka špecializované kurzy v oblasti teórií demokracie a demokratizácie, politiky vo východnej i západnej Európe, v USA a ďalšie. Naše univerzitné štúdium politiky sa neorientuje na prípravu budúcich politikov, ale na systematické skúmanie politického života na domácej aj európskej scéne, ktoré umožňuje identifikovať hodnoty a predpoklady, ktoré stoja za politickými tvrdeniami a argumentmi. Dôraz kladieme najmä na rozvoj schopnosti konštruktívne a tvorivo rozmýšľať o tom, kde a ako chcete prispieť k rozvoju rozličných organizácií a inštitúcií.

Väčšina kurzov počas štúdia pracuje s najnovšími publikáciami a učebnicami v angličtine. U študentov sa preto predpokladá veľmi dobrá pasívna znalosť anglického jazyka, pričom získavajú schopnosť pracovať s odbornou terminológiou v cudzom jazyku a prístup k najnovším výsledkom výskumu na medzinárodnej úrovni.
