Legend: P=lectures, V=exercises, S=seminar, ECTS=credit points, UŠD=hours of study work.

Note: number of contact hours for selectable subjects and their classification (exercises, lectures, etc.) is informative only and depends on the complete selected list of subjects. The requirement is based on the total number of credit points.

Note: the following table represents complete syllabus of the study program. Optional courses for individual degree tracks are all the courses that are not obligatory for this degree option (including the obligatory ones for other degree options).
