Slavic Studies

Description
The concentration in slavic studies focuses on slavic languages and cultures with a focus in either Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian (BCS) or Polish. It is designed for students with concentrations in other disciplines (e.g., history, music, political science, economics) whose professional interests lie in Poland or the countries of South-Eastern Europe. The program places equal emphases on languages, culture and regional studies. The concentration develops limited professional linguistic proficiency in either BCS or Polish along with adequate cultural sensitivity.
