FEATURES OF BABEȘ-BOLYAI UNIVERSITY

B

abeş-Bolyai University displays a number of particular features which make it stand out among the other European universities.

It is the university with the longest academic history in Romania, a history which begins with the founding of the Jesuit College in 1581 and continues with the university designs of Maria Theresa and of Joseph II, with the Hungarian university established at the time of Franz Joseph, with the Romanian university created during the reign of Ferdinand I of Romania, and then with the Babeş and the Bolyai universities established here after the Second World War. The University can take pride in an academic tradition that includes innovative contributions to European science and culture, as it played a significant part in the development of early American philosophy, published the first review of comparative literature in the world, devised the logic of interrogations, contributed to the mathematics of space flight, played a part in the creation of bio-speleology, in the research of multiple telephony, etc.

The University is a trilingual institution, as since the adoption of the 1995 Charter complete studies are provided in three languages (Romanian, Hungarian, German). Besides, we must also mention the programs that deal with the history and the culture of the Jewish people, as well as the study programs in English, French, Italian, in the Slavic languages, Norwegian, Finnish, Ukrainian, Chinese, and Japanese. Babeş-Bolyai University is a multicultural institution, operating in keeping with the European practices of multiculturalism, and it guarantees academic freedom and decisional autonomy to the language-based programs, faculties, and departments, in a manner consistent with the current EU regulations. Babeş-Bolyai is the university which introduced in Romania the systematic physical education of students. It is also a university which, after 1993, efficiently and competently turned to good account American programs (setting up, among other things, the Faculty of Political Science and Public Administration, in 1995) and the programs of the European Union (with the establishment of the Faculty of European Studies, in 1995, of the Faculty of Business, in 1996, of numerous degree courses, departments, programs).

The University has a long tradition of relevant experimental research in the fields of biology, chemistry, physics, and geography. Also significant are its contributions to the fields of philosophy, history, psychol- The University has also developed a wide network ogy, literary history and aesthetics, law. of international cooperation, being not only a Today, it is the university offering the widest range partner in cooperation programs, but also the iniof theological studies in Europe, with four faculties tiator of regional and continental partnerships. of theology—Faculty of Orthodox Theology, Faculty Whatever its advantages, a university can only reof Greek–Catholic Theology, Faculty of Roman Cath- main truly competitive in the broader framework olic Theology, and the Faculty of Reformed Theolo- of the European Union and of globalization by gy—representing seven historical Churches of Tran- operating far-reaching reforms.

FEATURES OF BABEȘ-BOLYAI UNIVERSITY than just the internationalization of organizations and solutions: it also compels one to devise and adopt structures and solutions capable of ensuring a competitive level of performance on the largest conceivable market. On the basis of these premises, Babeş-Bolyai University has recently adopted its Strategic Program (2007-2011), entitled A High Performance and Competitive University, which lays out the objectives of the institution for the coming years. The major objectives could be summed up as follows: implementation of the Bologna restructuring in order to improve activities and outcomes and increase their competitiveness; increase the positive impact of the University upon the country’s technology, administration, politics, and culture; a significant participation in the dynamics of knowledge, in the transfer of knowledge, and in the development of skill that are indeed competitive on the global market. What lies ahead for Babeş-Bolyai University is a period of self-analysis, a search for new solutions meant to consolidate the process of scientific research, which in the long run conditions all the other academic achievements.

A SIGNIFICANT HISTORY

luj University is, to a great extent, the story of the establishment of higher education in Transylvania.

In 1848, the issue of instituting a university in the Romanian language was raised. Romanians, the majority population in Transylvania, asked for a university Universities appeared in Europe during the 11th in Romanian.

Under the Ceauşescu regime, studies in Hungarian were reduced, although not totally eliminated. Significant features of this history, mainly religion and language, had discernable consequences, including an agenda for transformation in many spheres of the University’s existence. In December 1989, students and academic staff mobilized to re-institute the professional and democratic traditions of the University and reform the institution. Their objectives were stated in “For a New University of Dacia Superior.” Actions of many Romanian, Hungarian, German, and Jewish academics, who were driven by their desires to re-establish a high degree of professionalism and to integrate the University in the world of democratic values, provided the impetus for transformation. University’s developments can be illustrated best by the presentation of key statistics from 1938, 1971, 1989, 1992, and 1999. In 1938, Cluj University had 3094 students in four faculties, trained by 115 members of the academic staff (4 honorary professors, 84 full-time professors, 29 associated professors, senior lecturers, and assistants and 245 lecturers, and teaching assistants). At that point, the Central University Library, Academic College, the University Office, the Publishing Office, the University Extension, the Institute for Experimental Psychology, and the Sports Park existed. In 1971, a major change occurred. After its post-war development; the University had 14,438 students in 8 faculties, and 36 specializations under the guidance of 648 members of the academic staff. During this period, the University built the dormitories in the Haşdeu Complex. After 1971, as a result of the Ceausescu regime, the enrollment at Babeş-Bolyai University was dramatically reduced. In 1989, the number of students dropped to 5,940 in 7 faculties and 19 specializations under the supervision of 626 academic staff. In 1992, BabeşBolyai University recreated the units it had during its previous peak period. The number of students reached 12,247, studying in 11 faculties and 55 specializations, assisted by 826 academic staff. Since 1993, the most comprehensive and the most meaningful transformations in the history of the Cluj University have occurred. The University is now the most diversified (in terms of subject matter), the most complex and most well-established higher education institution in Romania. Coupled with changes in political, economic, cultural, technological and social structures, the University views itself as an agent of its own future, as well as the future of Romanian citizens. In 1996 the building of the new campus started, and in 1999 the construction of new student housing began.

6

The year 2004 witnessed the University’s greatest development in its entire history. Babeş-Bolyai has gone through many crucially important decisions and radical new initiatives regarding the organization of studies, including the development of scientific research, the expansion of the community services, the modernization of infrastructure, the creation of a state of the art communication network, and the involvement of Babeş-Bolyai University in the democratization of Romania. The decisions of transforming Babeş-Bolyai University into a prestigious university of Central and Eastern Europe (1994); making intellectual, civic, and moral commitments to the democratization of Romania and Euro-Atlantic integration (1993); massively expanding the infrastructure investments (1996); organizing along multilingual and multi cultural lines (1995); becoming a relevant member of the international system of universities (2000); and confronting the conditions of globalization with new initiatives (2003) have been among the crucially important decisions affecting the linking of knowledge to an open society. However, the processes of change are far from complete not that they can or should ever be so. Quality Assurance Quality assurance and performance measurement have been undertaken in Babeş-Bolyai University through the auspices of the Strategic Development Program of the Babeş-Bolyai University 2003, the European University Association (EUA) Quality Assurance Policy Paper 2001 and the follow-up of the EUA Quality Policy Paper 2002. University operations are linked to the Charter of the Babeş-Bolyai University (2000) and to the Strategic Institutional Development Plan, which is divided into several Annual Operational Plans. The Quality Assurance program assesses the activities within the Babeş-Bolyai University according to European criteria. Recommendations for improving performance and building capacity are generated and acted upon at all levels. Quality Assurance activities are supervised by the Department of Human Resources and the Center for University Development.


ACADEMIC PROGRAMS

T

he University offers a wide range of programs. The basic forms of academic education are the undergraduate studies, provided in Romanian, Hungarian and German. Upon completion graduates receive a university diploma. Undergraduate programs offer both theoretical and practical training, enabling graduates, who are awarded degrees, to enroll in postgraduate programs or to take jobs. Courses are offered in Romanian, Hungarian and German. In order to complete students have to sustain a graduation exam and present a graduation thesis to obtain a university diploma in the respective field of study and specialization. Curricula Each curriculum includes mandatory disciplines (offering basic student training), electives (students can choose according to the pursued degree) and supplementary classes, chosen from among the general university course offerings. A course usually lasts for one semester, but there are some which cover the duration of a full academic year. Curricula are structured so as to provide students with both theoretical and practical knowledge and skills. Courses have been designed or are being revised to fit into European Union’s academically solid and highly respectable educational frameworks. Practical Training The curricula include internships in various institutions (media, banks, private firms, central and local government organizations, and the non-profit sector) and practicum in fields such as biology, geography, history, archaeology, etc. Transferable Credits The University has introduced the transferable credits system whereby each course corresponds to a set number of credits. The minimum number of credits required per semester is 30. Credits obtained by students benefiting from scholarships in European Union countries are accepted.

Pedagogic Module Students seeking to pursue didactic careers must complete a module relating to the art and science of teaching. The latter is provided by the Teacher Training Academic Department offers classes in psychology, pedagogy and teaching methodology. Foreign Languages The University places considerable stress on foreign language classes (English, French, German, Spanish and Italian) and sponsors several educational programs in widely spoken languages. Computer Literacy Computer skills have also become a necessity for every student; because they fill a multitude of functions including collecting, analyzing, storing and retrieving information, computer education is mandatory for all students. POSTGRADUATE PROGRAMS Masters’ Programs Masters programs are open to the students who have received diplomas and last for 2, 3 or 4 semesters. Dissertations are required and graduates are awarded Masters’ degrees. The masters’ programs are designed to extend both personal and professional reaches of graduates and improve their quality of life in fundamental ways. Doctoral Programs Doctoral programs are the highest stage of academic training. Full time doctoral programs imply academic duties including organization of seminars or laboratory activities, as theory-based research, and preparation of written dissertations. Admission to doctoral programs requires acceptance by a scientific supervisor, mastery of two widely spoken languages and a master’s diploma. Doctoral students teach classes and seminars; conduct scientific research, and contribute to technological advances. Doctoral committees consist of at least three supervisors from the Babeş-Bolyai University, who are recognized for their academic achievements. The Senate of the Babeş-Bolyai University approves the founding of doctoral programs and selects staff in charge of them.

ACADEMIC PROGRAMS Advanced level studies The advanced level studies cover the complete offer on professional skills of the university. They are organized on demand of governmental institutions, nongovernmental organizations, companies and citizens. The participants gain knowledge on present-day issues, as well as practical skills, necessary for their field of activity. The duration of these studies is correlated with the level of skills the participants have to acquire and at the and of the program they receive a certificate of graduation from the university. Continuing education, distance learning and the promotion of social and community partnership The strategy of Babeş-Bolyai University in the field of lifelong learning is based on the regulations and suggestions of the European Commission, of the European University Association and of its own regulations specific for university reform. Babeş-Bolyai University encourages and stimulates the involvement of faculties in the development of lifelong learning programs and initiatives in the field of continuing education and contributes to the presentation of a competitive educational offer at university level by articulating the strategies and proposals coming from the faculties. The continuing education programs of the university imply the articulation of flexible offers made by the faculties (represented by post high school courses, graduate classes, executive training classes, summer schools, thematic courses, scientific research projects) aimed at: the development of scientific knowledge and professional skills, cultural development, development of the active citizen skills, personal development, career development, as part of policy and strategy for continuing education at the university. Continuing this policy, Babeş-Bolyai University sets forward the following objectives:

8

• guaranteeing the access to education in order to obtain different competencies and in order to improve existing ones • increase investments in human resources • the development of strategies and methods of learning and teaching to support permanent education • valuing learning • guidance and counseling • opening the universities to the community. The continuous training programs offer: • specific offers of continuing education (post- high school and postgraduate level) • community-specific offers (target groups specific for the profile of each faculty) • specific offers for the staff of Babeş-Bolyai University • training package offers for the providers of continuing education programs (academic staff members, pre-university staff, other trainers or trainers in the field of adult education) • offers of open courses addressed both to the university students and to any person who wishes to improve the skills in a certain field. Faculties can work in partnership with economic agents to come up with new occupational profiles and new professional competencies adequate to the changes in the labour market and to the technological process – the development of these competencies can be an exceptional competitive advantage for out university. Starting with the 2005-2006 academic year the study programs of Babeş-Bolyai University are offered according to the premises of the Bologna-Declaration (1999) and to the spirit of the present legislation in Romania. The Bologna-Declaration sets forward the creation of a European Higher Education Area by means of harmonizing the higher education systems in the participant countries, while the Law 288/24.06.2004 sets forward the premises for the integration of the Romanian higher education in the European Higher Education Area.

tudying theology is learning to find one’s place with respect to God and people in a pluralist universe. It is not only about learning the Christian foundations of our society and culture, but also about acquiring the general human values of our contemporary world. We are offering an opportunity to study theology in a high level academic environment and in the multicultural and multireligious setting of the Babes-Bolyai University. Our faculty tends to combine the catholic identity it assumes, an identity connected to the values of the European civilization, with the Byzantine ecclesiastic values which represents the Romanian spirituality.

With an impressive stock of publications (ca. 4,300,000 volumes), the library is the largest university library in Romania, as well as one of the most important cultural institutions in Central and South-East Europe.

From among the rare valuable publications, we mention the incunable Codex Iustinianus (Nürnberg, 1475) and the Coresi Tetraevangelium (Braşov, 1561).
