Overview of the programme and majors:

The Sociology programme is based in the field of social sciences. The education process is oriented towards providing students with general knowledge about the world that allows to diagnose and understand social phenomena, issues, and processes, as well as to develop skills facilitating the acquisition, accumulation, and analysis of knowledge. In addition to the knowledge and skills that all sociology graduates possess, each of them develops and deepens a wide range of skills relevant to their chosen major and to the challenges they will face in their future careers. Our graduates stand out and are characterised by:

  • passion for exploration,
  • interdisciplinary knowledge,
  • concern for people's issues,
  • professional research tools and techniques,
  • ability to diagnose and analyse social phenomena and processes,
  • creativity,
  • effective communication,
  • team work and conflict resolution,
  • ability to lead a team,
  • ethical conduct as the basis for action,
  • willingness to learn and constantly develop.

Human Resources in the Modern Organization combines theory with an opportunity to acquire practical skills that are needed in the modern labour market. The theoretical knowledge acquired by students is supplemented by workshops conducted by experienced experts-practitioners. The programme is structured in such a way as to allow students to gain a multi-faceted understanding of the rules governing the functioning of a modern organisation, while guaranteeing that the knowledge provided is reliable and up-to-date. Students develop competencies required to manage human resources, learn the realities of the modern labour market, recruitment methods, motivations and evaluation of employees, and learn how to build an effective team and successfully cooperate with the community. The Human Resources in the Modern Organization major is dedicated to all students interested in working in human resources departments, career counselling, employment agencies, and public labour market institutions.

Sociology of Business and New Media is oriented towards equipping students with knowledge and skills to operate in the broadly understood area of business, and with providing competencies allowing them to use media and digital technology in business. The curriculum is grounded in sociology, has a interdisciplinary character, and combines knowledge in the fields of sociology, management, psychology, entrepreneurship, and new media. The curriculum includes classes that aim to provide knowledge and develop competencies in organisational management, business ventures, diagnosing business problems, and solving business problems using new methods and approaches. In particular, the classes that students take prepare them to start their own new media businesses.
