Partner: Pázmány Péter Catholic University - Hungary
The Institute for Political Studies of the Catholic University of Portugal and the Pázmány Péter Catholic University in Budapest signed in 2014 a protocol where both institutions agreed on the establishment of a Double Degree win which students will attend one year at the Institute for Political Studies - Catholic University of Portugal in Lisbon - following the programme of the MA in Governance, Leadership and Democracy Studies, and one year at the Pázmány Péter University in Budapest - Hungary - following the MA in International Studies. According to the official international ranking based on international tourists' votes, Budapest was considered the second best European city.
This program is suitable for students interested in learning more about tradition, history, politics and also the culture of several countries. It is open to all those who are interested in the new challenges facing the European Union with its enlargement to the East. Students will also be able to deepen their knowledge about the contemporary history of the transitions to democracy, which have a privileged case study in Central Europe.
Students will be able to start the program both in Lisbon and in Budapest. The successful completion of the two-year double degree programme will lead to the award of a diploma stating the Double Degree.
