The course of study in Russian Philology with Applied Linguistics is primarily intended to provide students with proficiency in two languages - Russian and German (at C1 level according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages). However, a "philologist" is not only a language expert, but also an excellent specialist in the history, literature and culture of a given country.
Within the framework of this specialisation, students have the opportunity to acquire the necessary knowledge of the phenomena occurring in the area of Russian and German history, literature and culture, as well as acquiring practical skills in intercultural communication and translation and interpreting.
Students of Russian Philology with Applied Linguistics acquire language skills in spoken and written Russian and German in accordance with the requirements specified for level C1. An inseparable element of the study programme is a significant number of classes in Practical Russian and Practical German (as many as 630 hours), aimed not only at providing future graduates with a fluent command of the language, but also with intercultural competence.
- learning Russian and German aimed at mastering skills on the level C1 according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages,
- possibility of spending a semester abroad (within the ERASMUS programme) or at another university in Poland (within the MOST programme),
- developing your interests, e.g. in the East Slavonic Academic Circle.
