Short description

The aim of the program is to prepare students to become well-trained specialists in Slovenian philology. Students acquire comprehensive knowledge of Slovenian literature from its early period to date in a European context, as well as extensive knowledge of Slovenian grammar and the history of the Slovenian language. Moreover, they get acquainted with the latest linguistic theories, sociolinguistics, textology, lexicology, stylistics and phraseology. Developing both oral and written proficiency in Slovenian is an important component of our education program. The program ends with the thesis on a chosen subfield of Slovenian philology.

The MA program consists of a basic common component (60 credits) and an optional specialization (22 credits).

This program is recommended to applicants who have a special interest in Slovenian language and literature and wish to work in an area that requires Slovenian language skills or is related to Slovenian culture.

This program enables students to work as a specialist of Slovenian philology in the economic, cultural, political or social field. There are many opportunities for young professionals with an excellent command of Slovenian and a good understanding of the Slovenian culture as well as th ehistorical, economic and social trends in contemporary Slovenia.
