University of Novi Sad

The University of Novi Sad was founded on June 28, 1960 and it is the second largest among six state universities in Serbia. The total number of students is nearly 39000, teaching staff 2767, while the number of administrative staff is 1197.

The University is comprised of 14 faculties located in the four major cities of the autonomous Province of Vojvodina: Novi Sad, Subotica, Zrenjanin, Sombor, as well as the Central Library and The Academic Computer Network (ARMUNS), which is in charge of the development and maintenance of the university computer network.

In accordance with the European and world trends, the strengthening of the interdisciplinary character of contemporary studies has been conducted through further institutional strengthening of university centres for interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary studies, which comprise the Association of Centres for Interdisciplinary and Multidisciplinary Studies and Developmental Research – ACIMSI. At these centres, specialist, masters and doctoral studies in interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary scientific areas are being conducted. Having invested considerable efforts in intensifying international cooperation and participating in the process of university reforms in Europe, the University of Novi Sad has come to be recognized as a reform-oriented university in the region and on the map of universities in Europe.


The Faculty of Philosophy represents one of the two oldest faculties of the University of Novi Sad. Founded in 1954, today it consists of 17 departments, one of which is the Department of Psychology. The first generation of psychology students at the Faculty of Philosophy in Novi Sad was enrolled in the study in the academic year 1982/1983. Psychology studies are currently organised through two levels of study: bachelor study of three years and master study lasting two years. The new lesson plan includes semester-based courses only and a large number of optional courses. Doctoral studies are also offered by the Department. Teaching is organised through 30 teachers and assistants employed on a full-time basis.
