Course Content

The degree programme in Slavic Studies combines solid language training with fundamental knowledge and research skills in the areas of language, literature, history, and cultural studies. During the course of their studies, students will become familiar with the richness and special characteristics of Slavic languages, literature and culture. At the same time, they will learn to critically analyse and interpret the roots of linguistic, literary, and cultural phenomena in the Slavic languages from a comparative historical and cultural perspective. Along with providing in-depth knowledge of a Slavic language, the degree programme also provides students an overview of the entire gamut of the Slavic countries in their historical and cultural development, from their inception through to the Eastern and East-Central European societies of today, in the wake of the 1989 political upheaval as well as the easterly expansion of the EU.

Course Structure

The Bachelor’s degree programme is divided into an introductory phase, an intermediate phase, and an advanced phase. The individual phases are also each divided into three areas: Language acquisition, linguistics (= courses in the area of linguistics and literature) and cross-disciplinary skills.  

In this degree programme, students will combine the study of their choice of two Slavic languages. Options include Russian, Polish, Czech, Serbo-Croatian and Bulgarian. In the area of research, students will attend an equal number of courses in literature and linguistics. In addition, students will receive instruction in cross-disciplinary competencies.

Slavic Studies generally may be combined with any other subject in which a Bachelor’s degree is offered.
