The aim of the study is to develop and deepen the knowledge and skill acquired in the framework of Bachelor’s degree study and to prepare a philologist with a broader basis of Slavonic studies. The students will focus on wider diachronous aspects of linguistic research and will concentrate upon a more complicated level of syntax and stylistics; in literary criticism, students will gain deeper insight into the methodology of literary scholarship and the awareness of a wider context of Slavonic literatures and the place of Slovak literature in it.


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

  • have written and spoken Slovak-language competence at the C2 level
  • 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, and 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.
