UNDERGRADUATE UNIVERSITY STUDIES IN SOCIOLOGY

In brief!

Academic title: Bachelor (baccalaureus / baccalaurea) of Sociology (univ. bacc. soc.)

Duration of studies: 6 semesters

Completion of studies: a minimum of 180 ECTS credits and passing of all exams for one-subject course of study; a minimum of 90 ECTS credits and passing of all exams for the two-subject course of study

In each semester, students take compulsory and elective courses (a minimum of 30 ECTS credits). To acquaint students with different fields of sociology, the study programme includes several groups of courses, methodical, statistical, theoretical courses as well as courses in applied sociology.

As a rule, the students’ work in all courses is evaluated throughout the semester through periodic tests (preliminary exams, tests) and through activities at lectures, seminars and exercises (account for 70% of the final mark) and the final exam (accounts for 30% of the final mark). This model encourages students to study regularly and master the teaching material.

Sociology courses make up the bulk of the study programme. However, interdisciplinarity is promoted to enhance the students’ general knowledge and expand their horizons beyond the profession. Thus, students take courses in other disciplines and several courses in theology.
