University of Social Sciences and Humanities

SWPS was founded in 1996 by three eminent professors of the Institute of Psychology at the Polish Academy of Sciences. Since it was established, SWPS has become one of the most important and highly regarded Psychology centers for research and learning.

SWPS has had the pleasure of hosting many world-famous people: psychologists Robert Cialdini and Philip Zimbardo, marketing expert Bruce Newman or Martin Seligman an advisor to the US President Bill Clinton.

In our campuses located in Warsaw, Wrocław, Sopot, Katowice and Poznań we offer interdisciplinary degree programs for over 14,000 of our students. We offer full-time and extramural undergraduate and graduate programs in Psychology, Modern Languages, Sociology, Law, Journalism, Cultural Studies, Political Science, International Relations, Urban Development and Design. SWPS is the only private university in Poland that has been granted the right to award both post-doctoral degrees in Psychology and Cultural Studies and PhD degrees in Psychology, Sociology, Cultural Science and Law.

Being a modern university, we have enriched our programs with an e-learning component, and, consequently, our students can practice the knowledge they have acquired during their classes by taking online tests prepared by our staff. Furthermore, lecture notes are most of the time uploaded to the e-learning platform, which makes studying easier and enables our students to focus on the content of the lecture rather than the necessity of jotting down the teacher words.

Our offer includes a wide range of non-degree programs: weekend trainings or numerous tailor-made training schemes. We organize cycles of scientific and cultural events that are open to the public. Our institution values considerable debates and fruitful discussions, and this is why we often host world-recognized scientists, well-known artists and representatives of the mass media. For those who want to continue their education, but at the same time have an insufficient level of English we have included English Preparatory School in our non-degree offer. The participation in this program gives them an opportunity to improve their English under the supervision of highly qualified teachers. Depending on their individual needs, after a semester or two, they can attend and successfully complete their regular classes in the field of study they have initially chosen.

Our students have an opportunity to expand their horizons by not only deriving knowledge from prominent people, but also by going abroad as a part of exchange programs that we offer. They can choose among Europe, Turkey, Korea, China, and the US. SWPS is a genuinely international centre of learning. We not only send our students on exchange programs, but also welcome those who decide to study in Poland.
