The main aim of this subject is to teach students essential categories, which are used to describe the political system and its impact on political life in Poland. Students ought to be able to analyse competently different levels of the political system with government, parliament and president.
Students also should be able to explain using theoretical and juridical knowledge that the role of political institutions is not only dependent on the constitution but also on tradition, current situation and behaviour of politicians. The student should also obtain knowledge about the crucial rules of constitutional law in Poland (for instance: how the parliament is elected, who can vote, how the government is built, what types of courts do we have in Poland, what are the rights of the members of the parliament and etc.)
There will be many different methods during the lectures, especially proper explanation and drama method, which has got many advantages (for instance, a better way for exchanging ideas, better communication, speeding up the learning process, cooperation, etc.) Students will also play didactic games like an explanation of how the act of parliament is passed.
At the beginning of any class, there is conducted a short written test of knowledge, covering several questions that require brief answers (e.g. characterise types of the referendum and give examples of them in Poland, briefly describe the steps of forming a cabinet in Poland under the Small Constitution - 1992; characterise the position of the Constitutional Court of the political system in Poland). Completion of this short work requires reading and assimilating the knowledge from the primary literature. In the course of teaching, there are used case studies based on the activation methods in the form of simulation games (e.g. based on Polish law, write a regulation of a hypothetical association). During the course, at least one debate is organised during which participants analyse the problem (e.g. Polish Constitution requires amendment - yes or no?). The lecturer also leads a moderated discussion during which he can check the level of acquired knowledge and skills
During the classes, depending on the needs, various digital tools will be used to enrich academic teaching, including such as:

Firstly, students ought to be present during all lessons that are in the semester. If students are absent, they must come on duty in two weeks (the time is limited from that day the student was missing).
The main criterion for obtaining the credit is passing the test planned, usually at the end of a semester. If the test result is poor, the student must answer additional questions during a discussion with the lecturer. This situation may, of course, retard the process of getting the final mark.
When there is an extraordinary situation, which the student doesn’t cause (for instance: disease, mishap, etc.), the lecturer decides individually about the credit rules. If the students are absent from most of the lessons, they must write a short essay (the lecturer invents a topic of the article and it is connected with the programme of the subject).
The academic scale evaluates all forms of verification of learning outcomes. It is carried out regularly in the classroom, and in the end, is the final verification of knowledge and skills. The greatest emphasis is put on knowledge and only later on the skills and competencies. The percentage of written work is rated as follows:
100-90% - very good (A)
89-80% - good plus (B)
79-70% - good (C)
69-60% - satisfactory plus (D)
59-50% - satisfactory (E)
49%> insufficient (F, FX)
