Department was established in the academic year 1972/73. In the process of transformation of Faculty of sociology, political sciences and journalism (FSPN) to the Faculty of Social Sciences it has become an integral part of Department of Sociology.
In 40 years of its successful operation the Department provided students with a wide range of general social and managerial specific knowledge. This has contributed and contributes to the development of competent professionals who are capable of analytical, managerial and advisory work in the human resources and social field, in profit and non-profit organizations. Department also puts special attention on the development of professionally, ethically and socially equitable graduates.
Besides taking part in scientific and educational field, Department members actively direct our knowledge to practical projects and thus contribute to the development of professional field of human resources and social management in Slovenia.
