Slavic Studies is one of the more recent philologies concerned with living languages. The programme comprises the Slavonic linguistics, literature and cultural history required for a master degree, together with intercultural communication based on the acquisition of relevant linguistic ability. During the first semester, the programme introduces students to early history and Old Church Slavic as the joint basis of the Slavic languages, literatures and cultures. In parallel, the area of study is extended to the language and culture of another region. Students can choose between Eastern Slavic Russian, Western Slavic Polish or Czech and South Slavic Bulgarian or Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian. During the rest of the programme, the focus is on the chosen languages, literatures and cultures of the present and on modern academic theories describing them, particularly on a comparative basis. Students are recommended to spend a lengthy period in a region where one of the Slavic languages being studied is spoken.
