The Faculty of Social Sciences (FSS) was established in December 2011 based on the previous institute of Social Sciences and Department of Political Sciences which had originally been established in 1999. The primary activity of the Faculty lies in the area of social sciences (public policy, public administration, political science, European studies, political sociology, political communication, social counselling, social work and social pedagogy). There are two departments in the Faculty: Department of Political Sciences and Department of Social Work. All the departments provide education in bachelor, master and doctoral programs. Furthermore, the Faculty provides a habilitation and inauguration process in the field of Public Administration and Public Policy.
