Overview

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

The MA program consists of a basic common compulsory component (60 credits) and a specialization (22 credits).

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

This program enables students to work as specialists of Croatian philology in the economic, cultural, political or social field. There are many opportunities for young professionals with an excellent command of Croatian language and a good understanding of the Croatian culture, as well as historical, economic and social trends in contemporary Croatia.
