About the Programme

Master of Liberal Arts is, for the University of Opole, a brand new approach to the field of study that has always been defined from the top down and divided arbitrarily. The University of Opole has prepared a programme, holistic and interdisciplinary in its nature, which combines humanities and art with elements of social and juridical sciences. Master of Liberal Arts Programme is the response to the limited specialisations of STEM type of studies where neither human and social factors nor critical approach towards technology are taken into consideration. Our programme differs from the traditional form of Master of Liberal Studies mainly due to specialisations that are adjusted to demands of the labour market. Studying at the University of Opole you can choose from a number of specialisations.

Why choose Master of Liberal Arts?

Master of Liberal Arts is a programme that provides students with the competences necessary on a rapidly evolving labour market: critical thinking, communication skills, teamwork, interpersonal competences, and above all, intellectual independence as well as the ability to learn and quickly adjust to the new tasks and challenges. 
During this programme, you will have a chance to create your own study path.

Specialisations

The main difference between the classic Anglo-Saxon MLS and our approach is that we can give you an opportunity to choose a specialisation that will be best suited for you: 

 

Applied Gender Studies here you will learn how to explore the creative processes behind the social construction of gender as well as engage in creation. This programme is meant to enhance your English language skills and use them as a tool and not to study language as such.

Media and Visual Culture  is a specialisation that will allow students to deepen their knowledge of media and culture, better understand their role in the modern society, and gain necessary tools to actively and conciously participate in its creation.

Entrepreneurship and Organizations a specialisation from the field of sociology of entrepreneurship and communication in the organisations. The programme not only acquaints the students with a range of theoretical issues but, more importantly, aims to increase the students’ communicative abilities. Critical thinking, communication and interpersonal skills, and most of all intellectual independence are highly valued among potential employers, and so we will help you develop them too.

Advantages of the Programme

  • International student teams facilitate intercultural communication, comparative perspectives and dynamic co-operation;
  • General courses on philosophical, legal, historical, political and economic processes of contemporary public spheres foster reflectivity and critical stance;
  • Master’s research projects can be oriented towards assessing the properties and effectiveness of various forms of socially situated communication practices or addressing social problems through interventions.
