The qualification of future specialists is based on courses in the humanities, social sciences, economics and mathematics departments, as well as natural compulsory and optional courses. The programs of the first and second year of study include fundamental core courses that are similar for all specializations. The programs of the third and fourth year are comprised of specialization courses that students can choose based on their professional interest and experience already accumulated. After the third year of theoretical study, students can participate in conducting research, which is an essential part of their diploma theses.
