The programme is challenged by the educational paradigm shift which is taking hold in many countries which have obtained their political independence after 1991. New economic reality with the dominating market relations challenges new targets of education and consequently new educational settings at tertiary institutions in the Knowledge society. The tertiary educational institutions are being redirected from an institution of lecturing and instruction with dominating normative pedagogy to an institution of learning which provides the learners freedom to learn. The paradigm shift changes teaching and learning, assessment and planning, communication and cooperation, mutual relations and attitudes of all who are involved in the educational process.
The full-time degree programme covers two academic years. Classes are on Mondays and Tuesdays from 12.30 till 18.00, and Wednesdays from 8.30 till 20.00. The programme inquires full-time courses at the University.
