Public Policy and Human Resources

General information

The degree programme of Public Policy and Human Resources (taught in Czech) focuses on the development of knowledge and skills in contemporary approaches and methods of social intervention in public and social policies. Institutions that carry out these interventions and the measures and tools used are studied as well. Students thus gain a complete picture of the development of the public and social policies including their theoretical background. They are instructed in the sphere of preparation and implementation of policies, especially in the labour market, and about the services and programs that organisations offer to their employees, as well as enforcement mechanisms. The contemporary legal provisions of social policy are indispensable part of the curricula. Methods of research contribute to the practical work on social problems and issues within the context of society as a whole.

A successful graduate is able to

  • perform analytical and conceptual work in elaboration of the programmes in public policy in various fields, particularly those concerning welfare, employment and human resources;
  • implement and administer public policy programes in the aforementioned fields;
  • manage the institutions and organisations which implement such public policy programmes.

Graduate employment

Graduates of the Public Policy and Human Resources Bachelor programme may find jobs as independent experts who design and coordinating programmes in social policy, and social services in particular, as well as employment policy at the intermediate and regional levels, as well as municipal levels. After they gain practical experience, they can apply for the positions as specialists and managers in governmental, non-profit, and for-profit organisations which deal with public issues and human resource development.
