What will you learn?

The three-year bachelor’s degree in Education for Diversity and Inclusion is for students committed to making a difference as educators, social workers, or coaches and facilitators in today’s global and multicultural world. This interdisciplinary degree will enable you to actively engage in differing perspectives and develop intercultural competencies and transversal skills in three tracks of your choice:

1) education and psychology
2) social education
3) special and inclusive education

You will be provided with opportunities to gain a broad theoretical and practical understanding of diversity and inclusion in a range of intercultural contexts and educational settings. You will engage in community work and practices in schools, NGOs, civic associations, and social centers in the Czech Republic as well as abroad during one-semester internship.

Learning by doing: Practical training!

Already during the first semester you will familiarize with educational processes, systems and policies in local schools and organizations. In the second semester you can choose the experience of observing the conditions of education of pupils with special educational needs. In the third semester you can do a teaching assistant practice at school, or you can tutor children in socially disadvantaged families. Throughout your practice, you can share your experience and different perspectives with Czech students, who will help you navigate yourself through culturally complex situations and provide you with a language assistance, if needed.

The highlight of your practice and community engagement will come in the fourth semester when you go on a 12-week long, 15-credit international internship abroad in schools, NGOs, or civil service departments across Europe or overseas. You will receive predeparture preparation, ongoing support during your stay abroad, and guided debriefings when you return.

Career opportunities

Education for Diversity and Inclusion leads to a range of employment opportunities in both local and international labor markets, in the educational sector, in schools, organizations, non-profit and profit organizations and where there is a demand for policies and practices of equal access to education and inclusion of learners of diverse backgrounds. In the private sector, the graduates are needed as coaches/facilitators in global businesses to promote an interculturally inclusive environment for multinational and multilingual workforces.

Follow-up studies

It is expected that graduates of the proposed programme will pursue their study in a follow-up Master’s degree programme in English focusing on Leadership skils in Education that that will be created at the Faculty of Education following the proposed study programme. Graduates with an interest in the special and inclusive education track will be also able to pursue Master’s study degree in Special Education in English at the faculty.
