Among people: traditions and innovations.
The main objective of the Bachelor’s degree programme in ethnology is to present ethnology to the students as science, as well as to introduce them to the topics of ethnological research, its methods and methodology including the application of the acquired knowledge in practice. The teaching of scientific work makes an inseparable part of the study; it lies both in the acquisition of formal characteristics and in the development of students’ creativity, their problem-solving and assessment abilities and decision-making.
Field research is an obligatory part of the studies. Within the field research the students are supposed to master basic ethnological research methods and to describe basic researched phenomena. The fieldwork (2 x 5 workdays) is conducted under professional supervision of guarantors. The course of professional museum practice is to deliver the basics of ethnographic museology (work with ethnographic collections, their registration /CES/, storage, and familiarity with the museum institution's operation); it is organized in cooperation with partner museums in the range of 60 hours.
The graduate from the programme has professional competences which allow him/her to be employed in expert institutions (scientific organizations, memory institutions: museums, heritage preservation etc.), as well as cultural and public-educational institutions, and in state administration and self-governmental administration and in NGOs. The gained knowledge of realia and the developed abilities to identify, describe and evaluate cultural phenomena and processes, which are purposefully developed at among students during their studies, indicate the potential of succeeding in e.g. creative industry and tourism.
Students have a pre-defined list of required courses, which are supplemented with selective and elective courses. The student pays full attention to the single field of study chosen.
In this type of studies, the students focus on the main degree programme (120 credits) supplemented with another, minor, programme (60 credits). The student enrols in the degree programme in which he/she majors. Both the programmes are stated in the university diploma. You will find possible combinations on the websites of individual degree programmes. An exception is programmes preparing students for teaching professions, where both fields of study are equal and the thesis may be written in any of them.
