Chair of Social Informatics and Methodology

The Chair of Social Informatics and Methodology has offered the undergraduate (1st level) programme of Social Informatics, the first degree of this kind in the world, since 1984. Since the academic year 2021/22, the new two-year master's (2nd level) programme of Social Informatics is available to students interested in the digital society and our data-driven world. One strength of the new Master’s programme is its interdisciplinarity, which means that students can choose between two modules: Data Analytics and Planning of Digital Services. They address the need for a more comprehensive understanding of the role of data science and internet technologies in the digital age.

According to its mission the Chair offers theoretical base and professional knowledge and skills in the fields of social informatics, methodology, and statistics. In this way a graduate of Social Informatics can competently deal with the interaction of information-communication technologies and contemporary societies. Our graduates are employed in private and public sector, in their own companies, in academia, covering a range of professional profiles: web analytics, optimization of information systems and services, statistics and methodology, market research, research management and consulting, business analytics.

Lecturers of Social Informatics participate in a variety of national and international research projects, cooperate with different private and public research organizations in Slovenia and abroad, and publish with world's leading journals and publishers. They are also active in research within the Centre for Social Informatics, the Centre for Methodology and Informatics, the Centre for Welfare Studies and the Public Opinion and Mass Communication Research Centre.
