Bachelor's program

Liberal Arts and Humanities

Our BA in Liberal Arts and Humanities is an interdisciplinary Bachelor's study program that is centred on philosophy, history, cultural and social anthropology but also encompasses different academic fields related to the study of humanities and social sciences such as sociology, psychology, or economics. In addition to studying a wide range of disciplines, students can specialize in a field of their choice.

 

The program is ideal preparation for further post-Bachelor studies in the humanities and social sciences.

The full-time study program is taught in person at the Faculty in Prague. This means that your classes will be scheduled throughout the week at the Faculty headquarters.

The language of tuition is English. The standard length of study is 3 years.

The entrance exam consists of a short summary of an English academic text and 3 follow-up questions; it aims to test reading comprehension, proficiency in English, and the ability to articulate relevant points. Further information is available here.

After you pass the exam, you will be asked to provide proof of your previous education - learn more about the process here.

1. Entrance Exam

The entrance exam consists of an excerpt from an academic text - you are asked to summarize the text and its main points and answer three follow-up questions based given text. 

The exam is meant to test reading comprehension, English proficiency, and individual thinking – it does not focus so much on factual knowledge of specific academic texts, but on your abilities to understand and analyze ideas put forth in the given textual excerpt.

If you would like to prepare for the exam, you can start by reading relevant academic books – works of Hannah Arendt or José Ortega y Gasset should provide a good starting point. However, you don’t have to limit yourself to these authors – reading and analyzing any sort of academic literature relevant to the study program should give you the skills necessary to pass the exam. Alternatively, you can sign up for our preparatory course which allows you to take a mock exam and receive feedback on your performance.

2. Proof of Previous Education

After you have successfully passed the entrance exam, you will be asked to complete the second admission requirement - submitting proof of your previous education. In the case of our BA program, we ask you to submit proof of completed secondary education which can be proven by a high school diploma.

 

Do not worry if you have not yet received your diploma at the time when you are submitting your online application - you have until September 30 to complete this requirement.

Diploma Recognition

If you graduated outside of the Czech Republic, your diploma needs to go through a process of recognition or nostrification. This process validates that the diploma you are submitting is equivalent to a high school diploma you would receive after finishing high school in the Czech Republic.

 

You can choose from two options:

  • Recognition by the Faculty

  • Nostrifcation
