My experience as a student at the Department of International Relations of Masaryk University in Brno was stimulating for my interest in the field, challenging for my academic accomplishment, and rewarding for the cultural enrichment I enjoyed.

Arriving as a mid-career professional from the United States with admittedly some reservations, the excellent organization and professionalism of the faculty and staff immediately put me at ease. In the subsequent 2 years of my masters studies, I came to enjoy the atmosphere and appreciate the academic rigor of the program. The professors are highly skilled, many of whom with academic experience at prominent US universities, and others with relevant institutional experience in courts, legislatures, ministries, regulators and more. The cirriculum was infused with an effective mix of essential foundational courses that supported further exploration into higher level specializations about the important political issues of Europe.

The Faculty of Social Sciences is a historic building in the center of the city with newly reconstructed modern facilities and the latest digital technology seamlessly connecting students with all their academic needs. It is also an excellent venue for meetings and conferences, which I utilized to host a conference of stakeholders in my specialized field of study, with financial support from the university. In addition, Brno is a great city for study with 5 universities, 26 libraries, and more than 80,000 students all enjoying the academic lifestyle in cafes, museums, galleries, and cultural festivals.

My experience as a student at the Department of International Relations of Masaryk University in Brno was stimulating for my interest in the field, challenging for my academic accomplishment, and rewarding for the cultural enrichment I enjoyed. Therefore, I do not hesitate to recommend the program to prospective students seeking to both advance their academic progress and gain valuable career skills while enjoying all in a culturally rich university environment
