The University of Primorska was founded in 2003 in Koper (Slovenia), in a strategic area bordering Croatia and Italy. Through its activities it is responsible for the development of the Primorska region’s economy and welfare. The University of Primorska is composed of 7 faculties located in the coastal towns of the Primorska region. The mission of the University is oriented towards excellence in the formation and transmission of knowledge, collaboration in enrichment of the academic and social sphere of the Mediterranean area and beyond. The language of instruction is Slovene, although some study courses are also offered in English.

The Faculty of Humanities Koper was established as an independent institution of higher education by the Centre of Higher Education in Koper on July 19th, 2000, to be integrated into the University of Primorska in 2003.

The Faculty of Humanities at the University of Primorska offers undergraduate and postgraduate degree courses as well as doctoral courses engaging in scientific and specialist activities in the field of humanities, arts, cultural heritage and languages. To assure the highest quality in its operations in all these fields the Faculty promotes the following core values: excellence of study programmes, continuous development of infrastructure and equipment, highly qualified and experienced staff working in a harmonious professional environment, enhanced attention to the well-being and professional growth of students, creating better employment opportunities, a highly efficient support network both within the University of Primorska, and wider academic field in Slovenia as well as internationally. The Faculty of Humanities Koper has gained recognition for its great dynamism, due to its progressive orientation, its creativity and capacity for critical thinking, as well as to the collaboration of its dedicated teaching staff engaging with students in an atmosphere of mutual support.

The Faculty of Humanities is keen to offer courses with a difference – seminars with a lower student teacher ratio, a more friendly, individualised attitude to students, more international study and exchange opportunities (e.g. by inviting visiting professors and attracting international students), innovative curricula, providing a wide range of subject choices, and excellent teaching staff.
