Devoted to Education and Open Society
The School's position within the Institute of Philosophy and Sociology, a leading institute of the Polish Academy of Sciences, allows integration of teaching and research in its MA and PhD programmes and of academically oriented and applied research in its post doctoral programmes, all enriched by the presence of an international community of scholars. Our aim is to bring these elements together to add something new to the Polish academic scene
The knowledge and concrete know-how that our graduates acquire prepare them for rewarding careers in a multicultural environment in contemporary society. We aim at educating students predominantly, but not exclusively from the region, from Asia and from sub-Saharan Africa, not only for future academic careers but also for careers in public life and business. Our courses help students to understand, explain, and predict social phenomena and their economic, social, political and cultural conditions. Moreover, our graduates are able to use these social mechanisms and phenomena to successfully achieve their professional and academic goals, and this is the key to working effectively as today's managers, politicians, cultural directors, and scholars.
We offer high academic standards, programmes following the British system of education, close links to the leading Polish social research institution, and the individual attention of our faculty members. We expect our students to be intellectually open-minded and full of new ideas. When they leave we expect our graduates to have research and analytical skills in the social sciences/humanities equipping them for careers in academic, professional and public life.
