We are delighted to notify you that the Master’s Degree Program in International Security Studies (MISS) at the prestigious Charles University is now accredited for an English language curriculum that will commence this fall.  The deadline for applications to this exciting all-English Master’s Degree is June 30, 2012.  The cost of this degree program is highly competitive at 3,000 Euros per semester over a two-year period, for an approximate total tuition cost of under $16,000.

This program is co-sponsored by the Prague Securities Studies Institute, which began collaboration in this field with Charles University in 2005. The MA degree program was launched for Czech-speaking students in the fall of 2007.  Now, with a distinguished five-year track record, it is being made available to qualified English-speaking students from around the world, including Czech students who might prefer to pursue their degree in English.

PSSI remains committed to this world-class advanced degree program and will continue working steadily with Charles University’s Administration and Faculty to strengthen and refine the curriculum and attract current and former high-level security policy practitioners to serve as lecturers and mentors to enrolled students.  We urge you to consider seriously this cutting-edge academic and career springboard located in one of the world’s most beautiful, charming, and intellectually-stimulating cities.
