The Faculty of Social Sciences of the University of Ljubljana is the largest national interdisciplinary public education and research institution. With its ample human resources and its own research institute, central humanistic library and publishing label, it develops a range of social science disciplines, the intersection of which represents the optimal synergy of modern social sciences. It is specific for its range of diversified Bologna study programmes that are open towards one another and based on the intersection of knowledge and skills from all of the main social science disciplines. This intersection has been upgraded with substantive, methodological, IT and programme-specific competences, rounded off by a large share of elective subjects. Organised practical work is aimed to equip students of all levels with the broad and thorough professional experience necessary for entering the labour market. Another Faculty advantage is its strong encouragement of the students to study abroad and its facilitation thereof. In accordance with the European tradition of Enlightenment the Faculty cultivates the spirit of political and world view independence, respect for all types of diversity, autonomy and informal relations with students. Thus, it develops free-thinking, critical, creative, communicative and daring young intellectuals, whose work is an important contribution to Slovenian society, while their knowledge enriches the universal nature of humanity, simultaneously retaining various value systems and cultural identities.
