Target group

The Slavic Studies Master's degree course teaches intensive skills and abilities in the field of Slavic languages, literature and cultures. As a single-subject programme, it offers either Russian or Polish as the main language of study. A second Slavic language is also studied in which students should gain a solid passive command (this can be either the other main language of study, Czech or Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian). Students should be capable of independent academic studies on topics in the selected field of Slavic studies and suitably classify individual phenomena. The Master's programme aims to give students an active command of the main language on the C1 level of the European Framework of Reference.
