Course Objectives

Structured as a single curriculum, this degree programme in Foreign Languages and Literature is designed to provide graduates with a range of fundamental technical and scientific competences alongside advanced practical skills in the sphere of foreign languages and literatures, taking into account the international dimension, primarily European and American, of the curriculum.

The primary focus of the curriculum is therefore on European languages and literatures.

Students are free to choose the two languages (and related literatures) in which they wish to specialise (with a three-year curriculum for both two languages and literatures) from the following options:

  • French language (French literature)
  • English language (English literature)
  • Polish language (Polish literature)
  • Portuguese language (Portuguese literature)
  • Russian language (Russian literature)
  • Scandinavian languages (Scandinavian literature)
  • Spanish language (Spanish literature or Latin American literature)
  • German language (German literature).

Career and Employment

As a result of its focus on theoretical and practical linguistic disciplines, the Foreign Languages and Literature programme provides graduates with competences which can be put to immediate use in all spheres of work which require a written and spoken command of foreign languages, accompanied by a solid humanistic and literary basis with an international bearing.

In particular, graduates can operate as "specialists in human, social and managerial sciences", as highly skilled translators, linguists or editors.
