Faculty of Social Studies
The Faculty of Social Studies was established in 1998 and it is among the newest and most dynamic parts of Masaryk University. Its social science tradition dates to 1921, when I. A. Bláha, who studied under Émile Durkheim, established the Department of Sociology. Sociology and psychology were originally taught at the Faculty of Arts, but together with other disciplines they created the Faculty of Social Studies in the late 1990s. Today, the Faculty of Social Studies comprises seven departments and four research institutes. It educates more than 3,600 students in fulltime and part-time forms of study. In its teaching and research, the Faculty maintains high academic standards based on long-term cooperation with universities around Europe and overseas. The Faculty is located in the city’s historic centre, its building offering students and employees excellent conditions for study and work. It houses modern lecture halls, a comprehensive library, several computer labs, specialized desktop publishing studios and multimedia rooms, as well as a student club with a cafe and gallery for student activities. The redesigned atrium at the heart of the building, marvelous in its layout and architectural design, is a popular location for social gatherings.

The glazed patio hall, amazing with its layout and architecture design, is a common location for social gatherings.
The faculty is undergoing dynamic development; instruction currently focuses on fields such as Sociology, Political Science, Psychology, Social Policy and Social Work, Media Studies and Journalism, Environmental Studies, International Relations, European Studies, Gender Studies, Psychotherapy Studies, Social Anthropology and Security and Strategic Studies. The aim is to link teaching activities with research carried out at individual departments and research performed at faculty institutes. Courses on offer are thus continually enriched and developed by the inclusion of the latest findings in basic and applied research in the social sciences.
In addition to the above mentioned development, the faculty has internationalized its teaching as well. It currently offers seven Master's degrees taught in English (three of them in international cooperation as joint or double degrees) and all doctoral programs can also be studied in English. Integral parts of the classes are other courses held in English, and some block sessions offered by visiting professors. The faculty has also opened courses in the lifelong learning for interested public.
