The programme is oriented to provide students with theoretical insight into key areas of sociology alongside practical skills to apply gained knowledge. The academic courses combine theoretical materials with practical examples and cases, a part of which is based on own experience of our lecturers, prominent professionals of the field. Special attention is given to students’ active involvement into the academic process through presentations, discussions, debates, role plays and other similar activities which, at the same time, promote the acquisition of communication and team-work skills. Written assignments such as quizzes, answers to open questions, micro- and end-off programme projects serve inter alia to strengthen subject comprehension and academic writing skills. Both programme curriculum and academic process as a whole prepare future professionals for a successful career path in the sphere of sociology and related fields.
