I must admit that sociology/ what I majored in, is closely linked to changes and events that happen in our Roumanian society and this is what I enjoyed most about this school, it is very versatile, it explains concisely the main sociological concepts, you can deepen your knowledge on any concept and thrive, it is focused on people and the relationships that they build together, it is very popular in the media and it is just an awesome school to be in. I met there a couple of very knowledgeable students/ classmates, very competitive and very high achievers. Sociology is a great field to study and I highly recommend it, through the University of Bucharest.
I also liked the student life, in Bucharest, there are many wonderful places to visit, parks, concerts, theatres, dancing, restaurants and others, it has many international students and I enjoyed very much the years of college there, I have great memories and I encourage everyone to at least visit this city. It won’t let you down.
What I didn’t like was the fact that there were fewer jobs on the job market and that it is quite difficult to make a career out of sociology, I know I didn’t make a career out of this and I felt bad about this at that time.View more
I was always been passionate about social History. When I first started, I didn’t know how much of that we would learn. I applied for the master’s program called History of communism. It was one of the best decisions. I had great professors. Not only did they manage to convey the information accordingly, but they also thought us how to conduct archival research. My experience was so great, that I decided to do a PhD in social History here.View more
In general, opportunities are quite ok. As mentioned, in the middle ground. It helps you open up to people, to cultures, but as well some teachers lack some standards and equal grading. Quite subjective and shallow in some cases.
But, if you can ignore the above mentioned, you can have a great time there, good exchange opportunities and self-growing. The bottom line is that it’s up to you to see the bright side. Once you can find it, you will learn and grow.
There are good teachers that really care about education, they try to explain as best as they can so the majority of students would understand the theories and the overall lectures are interesting and they get your attention if you are interested in sociology and see how the world changes and with it the society, and the collective overall it’s alright.View more
The program is very good, the teachers are very involved and well educated and all of them give the students all the support they need to learn and to be prepared for the future.
Even online the teachers did a good job and understood the students.
The program I’m studying is in the field of Political Science. The courses are really interesting but unfortunately, they are poorly delivered by the professors. There are little to 0 internship opportunities, but there are lots of options for Erasmus+ or Civis programmes.View more
