Minor Subject Studies
Degree Students of the Faculty of Social Sciences
Degree students of the Faculty can study basic and intermdiate studies in all subjects offered at the Faculty without restrictions.
All the major subjects of the Faculty of Social Science require, that on the Bachelor level the student has at least one minor subject and a full study-block gathered from another subject than one´s own.
It should be noted that the contents of the studies for a student studying for a minor usually differ from the requirements of the students majoring in that particular subject. For instance, students studying a certain subject in order to obtain a minor subject do not need to take part in a seminar, while it is expected from a major student.
Hovever, any credits obtained at a certain minor do not form a minor subject. Each department has defined these courses or Study units, that form a study block and they can be found under each department's requirements.
In addition, there are following special minor programmes at the Faculty offered in English:
Students of other Faculties of the University of Helsinki
Degree students of other Faculties of the University of Helsinki can complete basic and intermediate studies in all subjects of the Faculty, excluding Communication and Social Work. It is only possible to complete basic studies in Social Work. These studies do not, however, give any formal qualifications to work as a social worker.
Starting from 1 Sept. 2011 no study rights for a minor subject in Communication are granted for the students of other faculties than the Faculty of Social Sciences!
It is possible to apply for a study right for advanced studies in a particular subject of the Faculty of Social Sciences. However, the applicant must have a well-grounded reason for her/his application (for instance, post-graduate studies at another Faculty of the University).
For further information, please contact the coordinator of the subject in question.
