Open Courses

The Faculty of Library, Information and Media Sciences offers a range of open courses.

By giving the public the unique and comprehensive education and research functions provided in the university, we aim to foster both cultural awareness and knowledge among citizens, from children to elderly people, and to enhance citizens’ abilities in their vocations and life in general.
