Double Degree Master Programme in Social Informatics and in Sociology and Policies for the Territory

A Double Degree is a programme of study that gives master students the possibility to graduate with two degrees – one in Social Informatics from the University of Ljubljana at the Faculty of Social Sciences (UL-FSS) and another in Sociology and Policies for the Territory from the University of Salerno (UNISA).

The Double Degree programme is only available for students enrolled in a master’s degree programme at both partner institutions, the UL-FSS or the UNISA.

Participating master’s students spend their first year at the UL-FSS, completing 60 ECTS, and obligatory mobility at the UNISA in the 3rd semester, completing 30 ECTS on the module Digital society. Students may decide to write the master’s thesis at the UNISA or at the UL-FSS, where they spend the 4th semester and acquire 30 ECTS. In the second year, students enrol to the UNISA, but remain enrolled also at the UL-FSS.

Partner institutions in the Double Degree programme fully recognize the ECTS credits and students’ learning outcomes achieved at the partner institution.

Students, who meet the entry and graduation requirements as well as learning outcomes of both programmes and have spent the required mobility period at the UNISA, are eligible for diploma awards at both partner institutions.

General competences

Students graduate with two different master’s degrees, which allow them not only to develop interdisciplinary expertise in different but complementary fields, but also to pursue two areas of interest in-depth, which can open new paths that reflect students’ interests and individuality as well as give them more career flexibility needed to earn coveted jobs. A double degree allows students to double-count some credits and the master’s thesis, shortening the completion time for both programmes.
