is currently one of the most popular studies selected by high-school graduates. In order to meet the needs and the interests of those who want to acquire knowledge in the field of social sciences, sociological studies have been created at the Off-Campus Faculty of Social Sciences of the John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin in Stalowa Wola. Such studies have existed for more than a decade and enjoy continual popularity. Many of the graduates pursue this career, changing the role of a student into the roe of teacher or professor. This school is slowly building its tradition and history, which, ‘temporarily' coincides with the history of the Third Republic of Poland.
