Faculty of Political Science is one of the youngest Faculty units at the University of Montenegro. Three following departments exist at the Faculty on bachelor level: Politics – International Relations, Media Studies and Journalism, Social Politics and Social Work. Montenegro is a country that belongs to one of the border regions, Balkan region. This is one of the main reasons why Faculty of Political Science is very interested in researching topics and issues related to border countries and other border territorial units. One of our Faculty’s goal is to research and understand geopolitical, legal, sociological and other specific characteristics of border societies. That’s why many courses at Faculty of Political Science have been created to help our students to achieve that goal. The issues of border countries have been researched within international relations courses, security studies, ethnic and national identity studies, ethnic conflicts management course and other similar courses. Most of these courses are part of Politics-International Relations department, both on undergraduate and master level of studies.
