The Faculty of Social Sciences in Warsaw comprises a diverse community of academics at different phases of their career. The team includes experts in the disciplines of management and quality studies, sociology, and politics, administration and public policy studies. Thanks to the research conducted by the Faculty’s scholars and their broad cooperation with the community and business organizations, students have access to the latest knowledge and develop practical skills and competencies during their studies at one of the Faculty’s study programs.

Our Values

Openness

The challenges that we face in the 21st century are too complex to be approached and solved only from one perspective. Complex problems require solutions that go beyond the borders of scientific disciplines, approaches or experiences. For us “openness” means interdisciplinary approach, international cooperation, and close relationships with the community and business organizations.

  • Interdisciplinary Approach
    We represent three scientific disciplines: management and quality studies, sociology, and politics, administration and public policy studies.
  • International Cooperation
    Our students and academics have an opportunity to participate in the Erasmus+ international exchange programs. SWPS University has signed over 100 cooperation agreements with higher education institutions around the world. At the same time, international students from over 60 countries study at SWPS University.
  • Community
    We are a community of employees, lecturers, students, graduates, and representatives of the local community and business organizations that has been founded on long-standing relationships and collaborations.

Courage

We teach for the future. We not only transfer knowledge, but also develop social and personal competencies, which provide our graduates with a competitive advantage on the contemporary job market, so that they could become initiators and leaders of organizational change.

  • Journey to Changemaker Certificate
    According to the motto “idea - belief - action”, we develop agency and self-confidence in our students, which enable them to positively impact the world around them. Our Management and Leadership program has been awarded the “Journey to Changemaker Certificate” by the international foundation ASHOKA.
  • Active-Learning
    We subscribe to active learning through experience and experimentation. Students learn through workshops, group projects, discussions, debates and simulations reflecting the challenges of the contemporary world.
  • Highest Standards of Education
    We ensure that our study programs meet the highest standards of education. We consult our programs of study with experts specializing in the discipline of social sciences, and we align them with the changing needs and requirements of the market. At the same time, we are in the process of implementing double diploma programs in collaboration with Kedge Business School in France that has been accredited by three preeminent organizations specializing in the assessment of business schools worldwide, namely: AACSB, AMBA, and EQUIS, and with Goldsmiths, University of London.

Responsibility

We develop the potential of a modern University by embedding academic work and activities in daily operations of businesses, public institutions and NGOs. Meeting the needs of the contemporary challenging job market, we focus on systemic consequences of actions, which extend beyond the particular short-term interests, and take into consideration the needs of the whole ecosystem.
