The goal of this program is to train professional sociologists at the bachelor level. Successful graduates of the program should have a solid grasp of the concepts and principles of sociology and have mastered (at the appropriate level) its methods, and they should be able to identify and interpret social problems meaningfully. Besides the traditional lectures and seminars, the program is based on project-based teaching methods and includes one semester of intensive project work.
This program is recommended to applicants who are interested in understanding the social world: how the roles and norms organize cooperation, why do conflicts emerge and how can they be managed on micro and macro level, how does the new technologies affect our everyday life. The program targets those, who would like to develop their communication, cooperation, and presentation skills. Those wishing to deepen their knowledge in a specific sub-field can choose from our specializations such as data analysis or criminology. Specializations comprise classes within the same field, and their completion grants students an extra certification.
This program enables students to be ready to fill a wide range of entry-level jobs supporting decision-making, requiring the solution of analytical tasks in the public as well as the private sector. They should also have gained adequate knowledge and skills to continue their training in a master's program in sociology or other related subjects anywhere in the world.
