Interdisciplinary University Study Programme in Administrative Information Science – 1st Cycle
The programme is provided by the Faculty of Administration and the Faculty of Computer and Information Science.
The study programme was approved by the Expert Council for Higher Education of the Republic of Slovenia with the Decision no. 6033-22/2008/2 on December 9, 2008. Changes of the study programme were approved by the Committee of the University of Ljubljana Senate at its 8th regular session on November 11, 2014.
The study programme is currently in the accreditation extension process. At the 18th session on May 26, 2015, the University of Ljubljana Senate confirmed the proposal of the Undergraduate Studies Committee of University of Ljubljana, the Faculty of Administration, and the Faculty of Computer and Information Science for extending the accreditation of the interdisciplinary university study programme, Administrative Information Science – 1st cycle.
The interdisciplinary university study programme of the Faculty of Administration and the Faculty of Computer and Information Science – Administrative Information Science – allows students to acquire diverse, interdisciplinary knowledge in administration and information science. With such a diverse knowledge, students should have the necessary competencies for an in-depth understanding of administration, governance, and management processes, their critical analysis, and development of information solutions that present a foundation for their better implementation. Programme graduates will be able to develop and maintain comprehensive information solutions, both the information systems as well as the necessary hardware and software. The study programme will thus train modern experts in the field of administrative information science, capable of pursuing a career in public administration, public sector, or enterprise sector at home or anywhere in the European Union.
- Aim of the Study Programme
The aim of the study programme is to offer students a greater selection of content provided by the faculties. Mobility of students, who will be able to participate in different academic environment, will ensure a higher quality of study, as both faculties endeavour to provide as high a quality of the study programme as possible. With mobility and joint work of students and teachers of partner faculties, the joint study programme introduces an interdisciplinary dimension, thus increasing the value of results of the pedagogic and research and development work, and enhancing graduate employability.
- Purpose of the Study Programme
The university study programme Administrative Information Science is interdisciplinary in nature and provides in-depth knowledge of computer technology, the Internet, and new information technology, as well as knowledge of administration, law, economics, and organisation sciences required to understand the operation of public and business administration.
