About the University
A Word from the Rector
Welcome to the website of the Catholic University of Croatia!
In this vast realm of the Internet, thank you for visiting the website of our young University.
The idea behind the website of the Catholic University of Croatia is to have a place which serves as an information center to both our current and prospective students and all those who are interested in staying up-to-date with the work of the University.
By browsing our website you can find out everything about the organization of the University, our sudents’ activities and projects, as well as the study programs and courses offered. Here you can also find announcements of future events at the University, press releases, information on job vacancies and the contact details of our staff and professors, who are at your disposal if you have any questions regarding the University or the study programs.
The classes at the Catholic University of Croatia are provided in the undergraduate studies of history, psychology, sociology, communication sciences and nursing as well as in the graduate study in history, psychology, sociology and nursing. I wish to express our warmest welcome to our current and freshman students.
Excellence is manifested through our study programs, relations between students, the awareness of the acquired knowledge and its applicability in everyday life.
The focus of our attention here at the Catholic University of Croatia is on students and their knowledge, but also on the educational and spiritual dimensions necessary for their daily lives and their future. The message that we want to get across to our students is that learning and science are important, but that a university is also a place of reflection, and search for direction in developing ourselves as whole persons.
Within the context of the Croatian education system and society in general, our aim is to provide our students with excellence. Excellence is manifested through our study programs, relations between students, the awareness of the acquired knowledge and its applicability in everyday life. In this process, we place particular attention on integrating the educational and training dimensions. Our professors work in relatively small groups, know their students by name and are open for cooperation, which often goes beyond the mere transmission of knowledge.
Let us rejoice together in the growth of our University, new programs, projects and activities! Follow our progress, ask questions, we are open to your proposals and suggestions.
Our desire is to reach excellence in education and training together.
Professor Željko Tanjić, PhD
