CHARACTERISTICS OF THE STUDY OF UKRAINIAN PHILOLOGY

The Ukrainian Section of the Department of Slavic Studies provides a five-year-long M.A. degree study program of Ukrainian philology in combination with another specialization.

The study program covers two parallel streams: linguistics and literary studies.

In linguistics, the study of Ukrainian language focuses on both practical and theoretical mastering of the contemporary standard language (in practical language lessons, lectures and seminars on phonetics and phonology, morphology, lexicology, syntax and stylistics) and acquiring elementary knowledge of other varieties of national language, namely dialects, and its tendencies in development. The study of Ukrainian language is embedded into the frame of Slavic studies in general, therefore it includes Introduction to Slavic studies, Introduction to Old-Slavonic language and another Slavic language - either Russian or Polish.

In literary studies, students acquire knowledge of literary scholarship, of the development of Ukrainian literature from the oldest period to the present, of Ukrainian history and culture. At the same time, the study is focused on the mutual relationships between Ukrainian and Czech culture and literature and on the world literature. The study of Ukrainian philology includes also elementary notions on translation, both written and oral.
