The studies in Russian Philology are primarily aimed at providing students with linguistic competence at a level B2+ according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR)
However, a "philologist" - is not only an expert in language, but also an excellent specialist in the history, literature and culture of a given country. Within the framework of Russian Philology, students have the opportunity to acquire essential knowledge about the phenomena occurring in the field of history, literature and culture of the Russian language area, as well as acquire practical skills in intercultural communication and translation competence. The study programme also includes the possibility to learn a second foreign language (English or German) at level B1.
Students of Russian Philology acquire language skills in speaking and writing Russian in accordance with the requirements specified for level B2+ according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages of the Council of Europe. An inseparable element of the study programme is a considerable number of classes in Practical Russian Language Teaching, aimed not only at providing future graduates with a fluent command of the language, but also with intercultural competence.
