Participational bodies Social Sciences

The Faculty Board is supported in their decision-making by several committees and participatory bodies. Participation is formed by two bodies in the faculty: the Representative Council and the Faculty Student Council. In addition, each study programme has its own programme committee.

Faculty Joint Assembly

Participation in the faculty takes place in the Faculty Joint Assembly (FJA). During the FJA, staff and students discuss the current and future policy of the faculty with the Faculty Board. The FJA consists of the members of the Faculty Student Council and members of the Representative Council.

Study programme committees

All study programmes have a Programme Committee (PC). The PCs are involved with the substance and quality of the education. Their main task is to evaluate the education and give advice on the annual setting of the Education and Examination Regulations (EER). Both students and staff are represented in the Programme Committee.
