JDU is a public university, with history that traces back to 1971. At present the University community is created by approx. 10.000 students and about 800 academic staff members. Our students can choose between 23 specialities at four faculties.

The Alma Mater...

The Jan Długosz Academy in Częstochowa is the former Higher Teacher Education School, which was transformed into an Academy. The event, which was important for the entire academic community of Częstochowa was celebrated on the 1st day of October 2004.

The history of our Alma Mater reaches back to the year 1971. Following a decision of the Council of Ministers of the time a Teacher Training College was established. In 1974 it was transformed into a Higher Teacher Education School. The employees of the Academy who remember that historical event for Częstochowa and the region stress that establishing a graduate school of humanities was of great importance for the fast developing city. Many people said that it was an unprecedented decision, because in those days the authorities showed much more favourable attitudes towards organization of technical universities. Graduates in engineering science were in demand by dynamically developing industrial plants of the region. First diplomas for completion of vocational pedagogical studies were awarded in 1973. The first Master of Art and Master of Science diplomas were granted by the school authorities in 1977.

The beginnings of our Alma Mater were quite modest. The College and the early HTES had only two faculties: the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences and the Faculty of Pedagogy. In 1974, HTES employed 90 academics. The staff included 12 assistant professors and 10 doctors. During the 35 years of its existence, the Jan Długosz Academy has developed rapidly and grown in strength. Now the Academy comprises four faculties: the Faculty of Philosophy and History, the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, the Faculty of Pedagogy and the Faculty of Art Education. There are also inter-faculty teaching centres: Foreign Language Study Centre and Physical Education and Sports Centre.

The Main Library is a real treasure of the Academy. Its collection comprises almost 300 thousand items, i.e. books, science journals, documents and a collection of special items. The librarians are very active in propagating reading. They organize numerous exhibitions devoted to issues important for the region, history and art.

Academics can publish results of their research in the Jan Długosz Academy Publishing House. The Publishing House is well known not only in the region of Częstochowa. It takes part in the most important book-fairs in Poland and in Europe. The House offers publications devoted to different fields of science.

The Jan Długosz Academy started its academic year 2006/2007 with 22 fields of study. 9 of them have the right to offer Master of Arts and Master of Science degrees and 13 of them offer courses of studies of the first degree. The Academy has the rights to confer doctor's degrees in two fields of study: Physics and History. Proceedings are pending to acquire the right to confer doctor's degrees in other fields of science as well as for the right to confer habilitation degree in History.

The JDA offers over 50 forms of post-graduate studies.

In current academic year there are over 10 000 students attending full time and extra-mural courses of study in the JDA. In the years 1973 to 2006 over 37 000 graduates left the Alma Mater.

The JDA is involved in popularisation of science and its achievements among elderly people. About 600 students attend courses of study offered by the University of the Third Age.

The strength of the Alma Mater is in its staff. At present the JDA employs 500 academic teachers. Nearly 130 of them are independent research workers. The JDA also employs about 350 administration clerks and service providers.

As a new attraction for the inhabitants of the region of Częstochowa, students and school-children the JDA built a planetarium and equipped it with one of the most technologically advanced projection instruments in the world.

The authorities of Alma Mater endeavour to add more didactic space to the premises of the Academy. Plans for construction of Academic Sports Centre are developed. Modern sports facilities will allow organising sports events and improve didactic base. Erection of a new building housing the Faculty of Social Science is another important investment. Completion of the investment and establishing a new organisational unit will result in organising new research institutes and fields of study.

Cooperation with foreign academic centres is an important element of recognition and classification of any graduate school. Our Alma Mater has long and extensive tradition in this field. So far, we have concluded 35 different agreements concerning cooperation with centres of science and research from 13 countries. The cooperation has resulted in exchange of students and academic staff. We have implemented bilateral agreements and jointly financed research projects. Results of the research can be applied in practice by civil and military industries.

The JDA of Częstochowa is one of the few universities actively organising Summer School of Polish Language and Culture. Every year, 50 foreign attend classes and cultural events organised for them. They learn Polish, visit interesting, historical places, study Polish language and culture.

Academic sports also develop rapidly. Sportsmen and sportswomen compete in sports events organised by academic centres all over the country and abroad. Their trophies include not only medals and diplomas, but also promotion of healthy lifestyle. Our student sportsmen are classified among the best sportsmen and sportswomen of all pedagogical colleges, academies and universities in Poland.

Academic authorities of our Alma Mater closely watch the political and social transformations taking place in Poland and in Europe especially the fast changing demands of the labour market. It is important information for planning our future educational offer. Thus, we plan introducing new systems of education, cooperation with foreign educational centres not only with member states of the European Union but also with states outside the Union, e.g. in Eastern Europe. The authorities of JDA work hard on strengthening and extending the achievements of the Academy, so that it could be transformed into a public University in near future.
