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 diachronous aspects of linguistic research, will concentrate upon a more complicated level of syntax 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 Slovene literature in it.


After successfully completing his/her studies the graduate is able to:

  • have written and spoken Slovene-language competence at the C2 level (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages)
  • have a deep knowledge of literary and cultural theories and the literature and culture of Slovenia as well as Slavonic or Balkan countries (according to their choice)
  • have a deep knowledge of diachronic and synchronic linguistic theories, including the history of the Slovene and other South Slavonic languages
  • work independently and conduct critical analyses

Graduates with this degree have a comprehensive philological and area-studies education, which qualifies them for educational and scholarly jobs, jobs in cultural institutions, in tourism, in journalism, as specialists on editorial boards, in low- and mid-level management in firms, in translating specialized and literary texts, in interpreting and as experts.
