Overview

The main goal of the study programme is to develop competences of conducting independent research in the selected sub-branch of philology on the basis of the acquired knowledge and skills.
The objectives of the programme are to ensure that students broaden and systematize the acquired knowledge about the content, methodology, major theories and current research in literature, general and applied linguistics, develop awareness of implementing theories in practice, acquire research work skills, foster generic and subject-specific competences and apply them in research work and professional practice. Students develop the ability to formulate, do a summative analysis of the developmental tendencies in linguistics, literary studies and language acquisition, and the ability to state the research problems and propose approaches to solving problems.
