What's new in our study offer?

New trends and employers’ demands for certain profiles of graduates, new markets and the growth of information technologies require continuous changes of our academic offer. We thus devote special attention to regular updates of our study programmes. Being a relatively small university we can quickly respond to changes of the labour market and other characteristics of the changing society.

New premises of the School of Engineering and Management

In summer 2017 the School of Engineering and Management acquired new premises in the newly-renovated Lanthieri Mansion in Vipava, also home of the School of Environmental Sciences and the School for Viticulture and Enology. Carrying out a part of academic activities of the undergraduate study programme Engineering and Management (First Level) on new premises has further improved the study conditions. The above-mentioned study programme was revised in 2016/17 and thus offers even more IT-related contents (such as internet marketing, web and mobile technologies, e-commerce, information security) and offering more elective courses. This additional knowledge gives our graduates, who in any case have great employment prospects, even better job opportunities.

New in 2017/18 – Master’s study programme Digital Humanities

In 2017/18 the School of Humanities launched an interdisciplinary Master’s study programme Digital Humanities (second level). The students with a previously obtained degree in humanities upgrade their subject-specific competences with new knowledge of information technologies leading to changes in the society and culture, while the graduates of computer sciences acquire broader knowledge of humanities. The studies are project-oriented and, in term of elective courses, cover the areas of humanities and computer science. The interdisciplinary character of the study programme boosts the students’ employment prospects and enables the students a high degree of electiveness, allowing them to select the elective courses depending on the orientation of their undergraduate studies. The study programme is carried out by the School of Humanities of the University of Nova Gorica in cooperation with the School of Engineering and Management and the School of Arts.
