UNDERGRADUATE STUDIES

PROGRAMME OF STUDIES

The undergraduate course of the Department of Social Policy aims at the interdisciplinary study of social policy and the acquisition on the part of students of general basic knowledge on the areas of social policy, sociology, social and political theory, social and economic history, methodology, economic theory, law, geography, demography and of special knowledge on particular fields of social policy. This is the basis on which the programme of studies is structured in compulsory courses of general knowledge and the more special knowledge selection courses. The duration of studies is four academic years, namely eight semesters.

The programme of studies includes compulsory courses, selection courses, seminars and the undergraduate essays (the six-month essays and the degree essay). In addition, students may choose a certain number of courses from Departments other than the Department of Social Policy. The programme of studies is compulsory for the first year, during which 12 compulsory courses are offered (winter and spring semesters). For the second year, students are advised to take the compulsory courses (12) offered and choose among the selection courses from their third year of studies.

Three cycles of selection courses are offered:

  • Cycle 1: Work and Education
  • Cycle 2: Area and Society
  • Cycle 3: Inequalities and Social Protection

In addition, a choice of selection courses which are a further specialization of the more general compulsory courses is offered.

The Programme of Studies is as follows:
