      The aim of Historical Sociological research is the study of issues of long-term social processes and trends that have significant impact on contemporary societies and phenomena. The M.A. in Historical Sociology cultivates research activities and the education of experts with an emphasis on the specialization of these processes.
      Above all, historical sociology deals with problems of modernization and social change, globalization trends and influences, integration and disintegration processes, the relationship of continuity and discontinuity, religious and cultural pluralism, linking the global to the local, the identification of the chances and risks of social development, the analysis of conflict situations and the possibility of overcoming them.
      The need for understanding of all of these issues invokes the need for the development of adequate theoretical and methodological approaches, and also of the specific training of university students, which is possible through the study of Historical Sociology.

      The study program is carried out without specialization.
