Apart from its academic profile that constitutes a national benchmark with international prestige, Babeș-Bolyai University of Cluj-Napoca (UBB), under the umbrella of UBB Cultural (https://ubbcultural.ubbcluj.ro/), has committed to preserving and fostering the Romanian (and Romania’s) traditional heritage in the framework of modernity, in the tradition of the academic values undertaken by UBB, namely Tradition and Excellence. As a world-class university, UBB not only thinks globally, but also acts both globally and locally, generating innovations with a global effect, introducing major international innovations into the lives of people around UBB and carrying the traditions of these regions into the international heritage.

To this end, UBB has launched a programme to promote Romanian traditions (UBB Cultural: Romanian Traditional Heritage), building on its academic foundation and its own branch campuses, but ultimately aiming to reach all the major ethnographic regions of the country. In the framework of this programme, a special project focuses on “Romanian psychology and culture in carols from the ethnographic ‘lands’ of Romania.” In this project, psychologist Daniel David will comment on the psychological and cultural (psychocultural) aspects on the Romanian traditions as expressed in carols from the various ethnographic areas of Romania. The project will run over several annual phases:

Phase 1 – Maramureș and Satu Mare (Sătmar): Codrului, Chioarului, Lăpușului, Maramureșului and Oașului Lands

Stage 2 – Ardeal (including the traditions of the Hungarian and German minorities in Romania)

Stage 3 – Crișana and Banat

Stage 4 – Oltenia, Muntenia and Dobrogea

Stage 5 – Moldova (including the Republic of Moldova)

Stage 6 – Other Romanian ethnographic regions outside the country.


Babeș-Bolyai University of Cluj-Napoca (UBB) is the university with the most complex academic profile in the country (by its number of degree programmes and multicultural character featuring three official academic languages: Romanian, Hungarian, and German), and with the oldest academic tradition in Romania (established 442 years ago – 1581), accounting for the largest academic community in the country (with a staff of more than 50,000 people, from 15 cities and 11 counties). Since its foundation, UBB has counted among the top universities in Romania, and for the past seven years it has been ranked first in the country in the University Metaranking, which indexes all major international university rankings. For several years now, UBB has consistently ranked among the top 5% of the world’s universities (out of approximately 30,000), with an advanced academic infrastructure (e.g. RDI units integrated into European networks, up-to-date teaching laboratories integrating virtual/augmented/mixed reality through the UBB-EON-XR Centre, etc.). Recently (2021), following the international QS STAR audit, UBB was officially ranked as the first world-class university (QS*****) in Romania, and in 2020 UBB was included in the GUILD, the organisation of the most prestigious European world-class/research-intensive universities, it was awarded the European HR Award for Excellence, and as of 2021/2022 it is a member of the EUTOPIA alliance of European universities.
