Course description

You will study the languages, literatures and cultures of the Slavic region with the aid of academic methods specific to this discipline. At the same time, you will discover during your degree the interrelationships between the individual Slavic cultural regions. This academic degree mainly uses primary sources so that you will learn from the very beginning how to examine linguistic, literary and cultural phenomena at their source and be able to systematically follow their subsequent stages of development. You can select different courses in the advanced and specialisation modules so that you can choose your own areas of focus in literary studies or linguistics. In the bachelor’s degree, you will take Slavic Studies as part of a dual-subject degree. You can select the second subject from almost all of the subjects offered in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities. Wherever possible, we try to link the seminars and your bachelor thesis to the themes covered in your second subject.

Our languages 

You can learn six modern Slavic languages from scratch with us:

  • Russian
  • Polish
  • Bosnian, Croatian, Montenegrin, Serbian
  • Bulgarian
  • Slovenian
  • Slovakian

Any of these languages can be selected as the main focus of your degree and each one is taught by lecturers who are native speakers. You also have the opportunity to get to know an early form of Slavic in Church Slavonic. We offer special courses in Russian and Polish for students who are heritage speakers of these languages.
