The aim of this MA program is to prepare students to become well-trained specialists in Polish philology. The students participating in this MA program acquire comprehensive knowledge of Polish literature from its early period to our age in a European context, as well as extensive knowledge of Polish grammar and the history of the Polish language. Moreover, they get acquainted with the latest linguistic theories, sociolinguistics, textology, lexicology, stylistics and phraseology. Developing both oral and written proficiency in Polish is an important component of our education program. The program ends with the preparation of a thesis on a chosen subfield of Polish philology.
