The Faculty of Philology at the University of Belgrade has been nurturing the tradition of higher education stemming from the Lyceum since 1873. It has been developing philological disciplines and growing as an individual Faculty since 1960.
Adopting the Bologna principles, the flexibility of curricula, the diversity of courses, student-teacher exchanges through various EU programs, and online learning are features of our Faculty’s approach to contemporary education. Over the course of the academic year, students are engaged in a range of educational approaches, lectures, interactive classes, praxis, and exams; but they also take time to engage in student organizations such as the Student Parliament and the Student Association, as well as to get acquainted with the work of the Student Vice-Dean.
While giving its best to cater to every individual’s needs and help each student gain valuable academic and professional knowledge, the Faculty has also developed the Digital Library of the Faculty of Philology with contents available to all students free of charge times. Its utmost priority is to fully support students’ academic studies while recognizing science, culture, and education as a mutual need and a common good.
Psychology teachers at the Faculty of Philology teach courses at the bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral levels aimed at preparing students of native and foreign languages for the future teaching profession: Developmental Psychology, Educational Psychology, Inclusive Education, Learning in a Digital Environment, Evaluation in Education and Education and Digital Culture. They also offer courses that introduce students to the psychological side of language: Language and Cognition, Origins and Development of Language Ability and Psychology of Reading.
At the Faculty of Philology, psychology teachers are also involved in the work of committees and teams where the possession of some psychological competencies is important: The Commissioner for the Protection of Equality, Team for Protection against Sexual Harassment of Students and Employees, Quality Assurance and Improvement Committee and Additional Educational Support Team for Students.
In the year when we celebrate the 70th anniversary of the founding of Serbian Psychological Society, we have a great pleasure to organize the European Semester of Psychology, named New Horizons of Psychology as science and practice.
