Tens of freshmen from Masaryk University pledge loyalty to the department

The now traditional knighting of freshmen of political science and security studies took place on Wednesday, 24th of October . This year it was organised by third-year students from the Department of Political Science at the Faculty of Social Studies. The inspiration came mostly from previous years, but this year was special due to the 100th anniversary of the founding of Czechoslovakia. ‘We had a lot of fun, I think it was better than the last year. The only thing I am sorry for is a low turnout of the academic staff,’ says a student of Political Science Šimon Fusatý, who was there.


Low attendance of academic staff was visible. However, the head of the department Stanislav Balík, like some of the department staff members, did not miss the event. He was the one to knight the freshmen with a book and words ’I wish you may find a job you will love. I do love mine and am looking forward coming here here every morning.’


Apart from the knighting itself, there was a pub quiz waiting for the fresh knights, dedicated mostly to important personalities of Czechoslovak history. The dress code, fashions of the 20th century, was also a reminder of the past. Another part of the evening was an auction of things donated by the academic staff. Books, cards or a t-shirt from Obama’s presidential campaign were students‘ hot picks.


Department of Political Science offers two programmes, Political Science and Security and Strategy Studies. In 2018 the department welcomed 300 freshmen
