CESP

The Central European Studies Program (CESP) at Masaryk University is an interdisciplinary program designed for students at the upper Bachelor's degree and Master's degree levels who are seeking a challenging educational experience in the heart of Europe and wish to develop the global perspective they will need in the future.

Courses include studies of the social, economic, political and cultural transformations that have shaped Central Europe and the Czech Republic in particular at the end of the 20th century, and the changes facing Europe in a broader perspective in the beginning of the 21st century. Courses, each of them semester-long, are taught in English.

CESP is also offered as an ISEP Direct track. See ISEP at Masaryk University for more details. Further information are also available at Masaryk University profile on ISEP web pages.
