1st level - Bachelor programme

The first-cycle university study programme Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology lasts 3 years (6 semesters). Course requirements amount to 60 credits per year, for a total of 180 credits. The study programme does not have streams, and modules are not expected. Upon completion, the graduate receives the title in “Bachelor of Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology”.


It is possible to study the first-cycle study programme Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology as a regular or as an part-time student. The programme consists of lectures, seminars, practical classes and field-work classes and it is performed by using contemporary interactive and practical teaching methods. Electivity of courses and individual approach (of mentors) to study at some courses is highly emphasized.


Study curriculum of the first-cycle university study programme Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology consists of the following types of courses:
Compulsory courses present basic knowledge about the history of the profession and its methodology as well as key professional and regional standpoints. At Seminar I, Seminar II, Diploma seminar and Diploma work students choose their mentor and attend his/her seminar at which they also write and present their seminar or diploma work. If an agreement between a student and a leader of a seminar is reached, a mentor can also be a lecturer not carrying out a seminar.


Specialist-elective courses deepen theoretical as well as practical knowledge. Students can choose between lectures, lectures with practical classes and practical classes, the last consisting of field-work as well as of other methods of work. Courses are executed jointly for the 2nd and 3rd year students.


General optional courses include contents of the other programmes of the Faculty of Arts, other faculties of the University of Ljubljana as well as other Slovene or foreign universities.


A part of the study programme is also a compulsory practical training, which students have to attend in each year of a study. It encompasses 30 hours or 6 days of the training each year. During the practical training students are supposed to acquaint themselves with the work environment – most of all with the individuals, working in the institutions, which employ our graduates – as well as they are supposed to gain (field-)work (research) experiences. During practical training students use their knowledge and strengthen skills, gained during their study.
Most of the courses take part during one of the semesters while some can’t be executed no other way than through the whole study year.
