The Faculty of Sociology and Social Work offers academic qualifications in the fields of Sociology, Social Anthropology and Social Work. Students may opt for studying in Romanian or Hungarian. Each year, some courses are held in English and welcome international students.
In a dynamic academic environment, sensitive to the surrounding social reality, we try to nurture the tradition of interactive learning and the collaboration between students and teachers in various research and social intervention projects.
Our graduates work as expert-consultants in the marketing or human resource departments of public and private institutions, researchers in social survey agencies, journalists, social workers, school counselors, teachers in the secondary or higher education.
Call for Papers
Nationhood in the Carpathian Region -- Hungarians and their Neighbours – Sociological Perspectives
Joint Conference of the Hungarian Sociological Association and the
Department of Sociology and Social Work in Hungarian of Babeş-Bolyai University, Cluj-Napoca, Romania
November 26-28. 2014
The annual conference is aimed to discuss topics that give us the opportunity to consider what sociology could teach us about being Hungarian, nationhood and minority. The Hungarian nation once developed differently from the pattern of European nation building and became a political nation. Later, following a tragic turn of events, it was forced back into a cultural framework. This is the Hungarian paradigm. During the conference we intend to measure the sociological and socio- psychological consequences of this paradigm, leaving the traditional historical agenda of national discourse. Our goal is to provide a forum to discuss sociological research results from Slovakia,
Ukraine, Romania, Serbia, Croatia, Austria, and Hungary from which we hope we will have a clearer picture on the posit.
