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

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

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

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