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