PROGRAMME OBJECTIVES

The interdisciplinary Master’s Programme ‘’PNYX: Political History, Theory and Practice’’ is a two-year programme. Combining elements from the fields of political science, history, social theory, law, economics and international relations, PNYX aims to offer a broad-spectrum, substantial and systematic course of study to every citizen seriously interested in politics.

 

WHY CHOOSE TO ATTEND?

The Programme addresses a wide range of potential audiences: aspiring or practising politicians, journalists or other publicly-engaged individuals dealing professionally with political issues, political communication specialists, and, more importantly, citizens; that is, those citizens wishing to acquire the necessary background for approaching political developments with the maturity and confidence of a qualified potential politician. PNYX also offers to graduates of various Bachelor’s degrees the chance to pursue postgraduate studies in a series of interesting specialisations (for example, law graduates can specialise in the philosophy of law or international law, graduates of Greek or European Studies can follow Modern History or Social Science Theory, and so forth).

 

The programme is evaluated and accredited by
