Overview

Short description
The aim of the program is to prepare students for well-trained specialists in Bulgarian philology. Students acquire comprehensive knowledge of Bulgarian literature from its early period to the modern age in a European context, as well as extensive knowledge of Bulgarian grammar and the history of Bulgarian. Moreover, they are acquainted with the latest linguistic theories, sociolinguistics, textology, lexicology, stylistics and phraseology. Developing both oral and written proficiency in Bulgarian is an important component of our program. The program ends with a thesis on a chosen subfield of Bulgarian philology.

This program is recommended to applicants who have a special interest in the Bulgarian language and literature and wish to work in an area that requires Bulgarian language skills or is related to the Bulgarian culture. The MA program does not provide teaching qualifications.

This program enables students to work as specialists of Bulgarian philology in the fields of economy, culture, politics or social sciences. There are many opportunities for young professionals with an excellent command of Bulgarian and a good understanding of Bulgarian culture, as well as historical, economic and social trends in contemporary Bulgaria.
