Program Description

Bachelor in Liberal Arts and Humanities

Faculty of Humanities, Charles University

The Bachelor Degree study in Liberal Arts and Humanities is a university study in the humanities that is centered on philosophy, history, and cultural and social anthropology. The program's signature feature is a widely opened study schedule that allows students to pursue their individual abilities and develop their interests. Every student completes mandatory courses in humanities and social sciences and passes comprehensive exams relevant to each field. By properly choosing other courses during the study, students can gradually specialize and focus either on further (Master's) study in any of the relative theoretical branches or on the practical use of acquired skills.

Description of the entrance examination and evaluation criteria

The entrance examination is comprised of a summary of an English academic text, to be written in English, and answering follow-up questions based on the text, in English. These questions are intended to ascertain whether the applicant fully grasped the content of the text. The applicant can acquire up to 28 points (19 for the summary and 3 points for each of the answers). Prior to the examination, applicants will receive a letter announcing the date and time of the examination. No dictionaries, books, notes, mobile phones or other digital devices are allowed. The result of the said exam will be made public on the very next day following the exam.

Conditions for admission

  1. Obtain the acceptable minimum number of points in the entrance examination.
  2. Submit a notarized copy of your high school or secondary school diploma. If you graduated outside the Czech Republic, then you must submit an official “nostrification” document validating your foreign education.

Information on the exercise of graduates

The graduate of the Liberal Arts and Humanities acquire knowledge in many disciplines of the humanities (philosophy, sociology, psychology, history, anthropology, and economics) and an interdisciplinary, thorough practical knowledge of at least one foreign language, including professional translation skills, the ability of critical thinking and of sophisticated speech and writing. Great emphasis is put, above all, on self-reliance and responsibility training and on individual creative work, which allows developing further effective education and flexibility under the changing conditions on the labor market. The graduate acquires qualifications for a wide range of employment, for example in the fields of state administration and self-government, in non-profit organizations, in education, in research activities for various institutions or in consulting in the multicultural sphere and in humanities-oriented institutions. The graduate with a predominantly theoretical specialization acquires during their studies not only a solid base in the general humanities, but also expertise in any of above- mentioned humanities disciplines, and thus will be adequately prepared for further studies in many branches of the humanities on the master's level. The graduate with a predominantly applied skills specialization may be employed in the fields of public relations, advertisement, media etc., thanks to their acquired knowledge of, for example, creating research projects, text editing, and preparation, information processing and creating company presentations.
