The School of Advanced Social Studies in Nova Gorica (SASS) was established as an independent private higher education institution on 15 June 2006.
In 2007, the teaching process started at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. In the academic year 2007/08, SASS began implementing full-time study programmes, namely the undergraduate study programme Advanced Social Studies, which is renamed into (academic) study programme Social Management, and the master’s study programme Intercultural Management. In 2008, the School obtained accreditation for a doctoral programme of Sociology, thus vertically completing the system of study programmes, i.e. at the postgraduate, master’s and doctoral levels.
A year later, we started creating an additional vertical line vertical in the field of social management, where we obtained accreditation for the undergraduate (BA) study programme and a master’s study programme titled Social Management (currently inactive). In the academic year 2012/13, bachelor of arts study programme and master’s study programme Psychosocial Counselling were added to the existing programmes.
Our vision is described with these words: "We will become one of the leading European centers in the selected fields of social science, with a significant impact on the local, national and international environment."
We are committed to innovativeness, excellence and usefulness of knowledge. We encourage intellectual reflection and the transfer of scientific findings to the local and global environment. We educate responsible individuals, capable of performing their work in a competent manner and to cope actively with the situation on the market and in society. Thus we co-create the conditions for openness, freedom, welfare and sustainability.
This is our mission.
