Additionally, students can choose from an offer of elective courses and create their own unique curriculums that complement their skills and interests. By choosing other courses during the study, students can gradually specialize in specific academic fields and focus on their preferred topics. After completing the study program, graduates can either continue in further studies at our Faculty or make a practical use out of their acquired skills.
