Bachelor's programmes

Humanities (1)



Years ago, three scholars working for the Polish Academy of Science (PAN) shared one bold idea - to create the best university in the country. This is how the University of Social Sciences and Humanities was created in 1996.


Since its inception, SWPS University has been dedicated to teaching and research. We are proud to count distinguished scholars, who engage in research on international level and publish in world’s leading academic journals, among our faculty. We highly value our teaching staff for their passionate approach to education, sharing their knowledge and experience, guiding students through the course of their studies, helping them grow as young scholars, future professionals, and most of all, as human beings. 


The SWPS University of Social Sciences and Humanities has signed a declaration of support for the assumptions made in the European Charter for Researchers and a Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers. Our University is competing for a prestigious HR Excellence in Research award presented to institutions which provide their researchers with the best working conditions.

I have just applied for a masters program in clinical psychology (English) and the admission officers are awesome and amazing.

Don't judge a book by its cover

My university is small but it is a great place to learn. Though it is little, personally, it benefitted me a lot as teachers had the opportunity to get to know their students and students had the opportunity to talk to teachers outside of their lesson time and comfort zone making them very approachable. They are always positive about it which had only helped me.
