Programme B0314A250014: Social Sciences - bachelor, full-time
Academic year 2020/2021
Social Sciences is a interdisciplinary programme aiming to develop students' analytical skills in social sciences. Primarily, the program is focused on current transdisciplinary issues such as complexity management, governance, mediatisation of social relations or interdependence of society, technology and the natural environment. Secondly, social research methodology is stressed as a prerequisite for the development of students' analytical skills and for finding practical solutions to complex issues. Both analytical and interpretative approaches are employed. The attention is particularly paid to the preparation of the bachelor's thesis as a way to develop soft skills and to conduct project-oriented research.
Graduates have an overview of the main issues of contemporary societies addressed by the social sciences and know selected analytical approaches used in the social research. They are competent in the use of basic methods of social research, including its ethical reflection. Graduates can independently perform specific analyses of particular social problems from an interdisciplinary perspective. Graduates are prepared to practice many practical professions in basic or applied research, media and communications, public relations, government, non-profit, or private companies. Graduates are also adequately prepared for further pursuit of studies in Social Sciences whether it be in the Czech Republic or abroad.
