About the faculty

The Faculty of Humanities was founded in 2000, and three years later it was one of the founding members of the University of Primorska. It carries out undergraduate and postgraduate study programmes and participates scientifically and professionally in the social sciences and humanities. In doing so, it is based on values that ensure the quality of operations: excellence of study programmes, competence of the collective, professional growth and well-being of students, effective connections within the university, Slovenian and international arena, and employability of students.


UP FHŠ will strengthen and develop in the field of pedagogy and research and become widely recognized for its modernly designed, high-quality and interdisciplinary study programs, with optionality that allows students to adapt their studies to their own interests, for the nationally and internationally recognized research work of teachers and students, and orientation towards the characteristic cultural space of the northern Adriatic part of the Mediterranean, towards the wider Slovenian and international space.


At UP FHŠ, we contribute to the sustainable development of society by opening our minds to new knowledge, cooperation and respect for the views of others. Students are actively involved in the educational process and research. They acquire knowledge of the humanities, social sciences and arts in an open dialogue, with the help of modern educational methods, project work and practical training outside of the institution. This enables them to develop into broad-minded, critical and responsible personalities. Combining the knowledge of various disciplines and the experience of a multicultural, multilingual and open Mediterranean environment gives them additional opportunities for independent and active integration into society.


In educational and research work at UP FHŠ, we follow the fundamental values ​​of the University of Primorska with an emphasis on the internal values ​​of the member:

  • responsibility and quality: in all our operations we are committed to responsibility towards knowledge, young generations and the social environment, we pursue quality for the appropriate development of the pillars of humanities studies and orientation at the undergraduate and postgraduate level;
  • freedom and openness: consideration of academic and creative freedom and the development of civilizational achievements of humanism, enabling and encouraging the creative involvement of students in the study and research process and extracurricular activities;
  • affiliation: personal and close internal cooperation between higher education teachers, between teachers and students, and a well-developed tutoring system;
  • adaptability: as a young faculty, we can quickly respond to changes and shifts in the university environment at home and abroad, we are open to the regional, wider Slovenian, European and international space, for interdisciplinary study programs with an emphasis on the characteristics of the Mediterranean area and diverse cultural contacts;
  • innovation: we want to provide our community with the best possible conditions for quality research, education and artistic activity.
