Profile of a Graduate
The graduate of the Liberal Arts and Humanities acquires knowledge in many disciplines of the humanities (philosophy, sociology, psychology, history, anthropology and economics) and an interdisciplinary, thorough practical knowledge of at least one foreign language, including professional translation skills, the ability of critical thinking and of sophisticated speech and writing. Great emphasis is put, above all, on self-reliance and responsibility training and on individual creative work, which allows to develop further effective education and flexibility under the changing conditions on the labour market. The graduate acquires qualifications for a wide range of employments, for example in the fields of state administration and self-government, in non-profit organisations, in education, in research activities for various institutions or in consulting in the multicultural sphere and in humanities-oriented institutions. The graduate with a predominantly theoretical specialisation acquires during their studies not only a solid base in the general humanities, but also expertise in any of above- mentioned humanities disciplines, and thus will be adequately prepared for further studies in many branches of the humanities on the master's level. The graduate with a predominantly applied skills specialisation may be employed in the fields of public relations, advertisement, media etc., thanks to their acquired knowledge of, for example, creating research projects, text editing and preparation, information processing and creating company presentations.
