The Department provides integrated teaching of Sociology and Psychology, which are correlated and, at the same time, belong to independent subject areas. The Department carries out systematic training of bachelors and masters in Sociology, as well as increases the psychological competence of the students of our University (lawyers, political scientists, journalists, etc). Besides, the Department conducts fundamental and applied research in the context of social and psychological patterns of human existence.

The qualified magistral personnel of the Department provides comprehensive training for bachelors and masters. Teachers of the Department are members of specialized academic councils, expert and advisory boards, as well as sociological services, agencies and foundations. Besides, they act as opponents of dissertations. Many teachers of the Department undertook practical training abroad (in United States, Germany, Cuba and other countries).

In 2016, the collective monograph «Час вибору: виклики інформаційної епохи» under the general editorship of Professor D. Yakovlev (Dean of the Faculty of Psychology, Political Science and Sociology), was published.

Such traditional disciplines as Sociology, Social and Political Processes, Decision Theory, Social and Political Forecasting and History of Sociology, which give considerable attention to social and psychological impact of actions and decisions, acquired new subject matter.

The Chair uses efforts of famous scholars in order to improve the teaching process: M.Holovatiy "Политическая психология" (2009); M.Mikhalchenko "Украина как новая историческая реальность" (2004); M.Zakharchenko "История социологии" (1993); v.Burdyak, S.Vasilenko, V.Verenko "Политика и права человека" (2011); G.Shyokin "Социальная теория и кадровая политика" (2000), V.Sharonov "Основы социальной антропологии" (1997); M. Weber "Образ общества" (1994); M. Heidegger "Время и бытие" (1993) and others.

All these factors have aroused students' interest of studying of Sociology and Psychology, that has resulted not only in their knowledge, but also their participation in academic competitions, conferences, and their theses, which are developed within the Department.
