National emblem

You cannot consciously stop science in its creativity. It has the dynamics of unstoppable momentum. It has become a passion of a human being, who is a creature with a high forehead. 


prof. Tadeusz Kotarbiński, the first Rector of the University of Lodz


The Faculty of Economics and Sociology is the largest of thirteen Faculties at the University of Lodz. Every fourth academic employee has a doctor habilitatus degree or a title of a professor. Many graduates from the Faculty as well as academics performed or still perform important functions in the public life of Poland and in the institutions of the European Union. 

The highest quality of research and education at the Faculty is confirmed by scientific category A received from the Ministry of Science and Higher Education in the assessment of the activity of scientific units. This category was also awarded to the Faculty in 2017.

Every year we adjust our offer of full-time studies, non-degree postgraduate courses and doctoral schools to the needs of the candidates. We cooperate closely with business, non-governmental organisations and scientific experts. We want the knowledge we provide to find use in the face of challenges that societies are currently facing. 



One should question everything one can question, for this is the only way one can discover the unquestionable.
