Be a professional needed in every field
If you want to work in the public sector, you can find a wide range of opportunities for experts in public and social policy. If the private sector is your chosen path, human resources managers are needed in all major corporations.

Be able to do some good in the world
Knowledge gained in this programme is optimal for working in various NGOs and other non-profit organisations focusing on social work or for public sector bodies implementing the social policy. 

Gain the international experience
We encourage our students to spend a semester abroad to widen their horizons. Find the best practices abroad and see the field from a completely different perspective.

 

The aim of the subsequent regular and distance studies master’s program in English is to provide the graduate with the ability to link the knowledge and skills acquired in the bachelor's degree of Public and Social Policy and Human Resources or another related field, and to gain professional qualifications for the independent performance of a wide range of public and social policy, social services, employment policy activities and human resources development, as well as the prerequisites to develop these skills in practice or further study.

Their core involves two abilities:

the ability to independently reflect on and evaluate the problems and implemented measures of public and social policy, social services, social work and human resources development, and cope with dilemmas associated with them,

the ability to independently design and implement system-specific measures, and coordinate their implementation.

On the basis of these are the other expected abilities of the graduate:

to independently seek, identify and reflect on the causes and consequences of current or latent public and social problems and systemic weaknesses in public and social policy measures, social services, social work, employment policy and human resources development, both at the societal and local levels, as well as that of organizations,

to independently reflect on and articulate the need for the implementation of public and social policy, social services and social work programs and systemic conditions of human resources development,

to coordinate activities in organizations implementing public and social policy, social services and social work programs and human resources development, and contribute to the development of their own human resources and organizational capacities as a prerequisite for coping with the tasks in the field.
