The program accepts the admittance of a small group of students, which makes it possible to devote focused attention to the individual development of each student with regard to their skills and knowledge, to have interactive discussions at the classes, to have feedback-based structuring of courses; moreover, it creates a friendly atmosphere at the lectures and seminars. Classes in research methods are heavily oriented towards the development of problem-solving skills.

The purpose of the Sociology BA course is to train graduates with a good basic knowledge of sociology, who can help to establish a knowledge-based information society, to improve the quality of life, to achieve social democracy and to strengthen social integration.

  • In the framework of ERASMUS exchange programmes our students have the opportunity to study for one semester abroad, especially in Germany, Finland, Holland, Italy, Slovenia and the U.K.

  • One of our primary aims is for our students to experience a good teacher-student relationship. This is promoted not only by seminars and lectures, but also by other forums, such as the Sociology Workshops, Film Club, and other informal events. Some of the students are also involved in research programmes. The teaching staff make every effort to get to know their students and help them to improve their talents. We are proud of the scientific results, excellent theses and publications produced by our students.
