Combined South-Slavonic Studies
“South Slavic Languages – from the Alps to the Orient.”
The aim of the study is to develop and deepen the knowledge and skill acquired in the framework of bachelor’s study and to prepare a philologist with a wider basis of Slavonic studies. The students will focus on wider diachronic aspects of linguistic research, will concentrate upon a more complicated level of lexicology and stylistics; in literary criticism they will get a deeper insight into the methodology of literary scholarship and the awareness of a wider context of Slavonic literatures and the place of Slovenian, Croatian, Serbian, Macedonian or Bulgarian literature in it. The separate elaboration of master’s diploma theses under the individual guidance of supervisors represents a specific preparation for the potential doctoral study and, at the same time, the verification of the acquired knowledge and skill.
After successfully completing his/her studies the graduate is able to:
- have written and spoken croatian, serbian, bulgarian or macedonian language competence at the C2 level (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages).

- have a deep knowledge of diachronic and synchronic linguistic theories, including the history of the Croatian, Serbian, Macedonian or Bulgarian and other South Slavonic languages.
