Degree programme objectives

The aim of the follow-up master’s programme in Teaching of Russian Language and Literature for Secondary Schools is to prepare highly qualified and competent teacher of Russian language and literature who is thoroughly (professionally and individually) prepared to teach at secondary school or at the lower secondary schools and, if needed, at language schools where the Russian is taught as a foreign language.

Pregradual teaching practice, based on the four basic principles (programme disciplines, programme didactical component, pedagogical and psychological propaedeutic and reflected teaching practice), follows up the proper special basis, gained during previous bachelor’s study in the SP in Russian Studies (language competence in Russian at B2 level, the knowledge of the Russian grammar, the Russian literature, the history and the culture) and it is focused on the further deepening of professional competences and creating pedagogical and psychological, didactic, communicative and other personally cultivated competences necessary for the professional career in teaching the foreign language.

The emphasis is so put predominantly on the close connection of theoretical, pedagogical and psychological as well as didactical study programme components with the practical component of teachers’ preparation that consists of graduational system of follow-up intern and extern practices (parallel and continuous) and their managed reflection in the close connection with the contractual providers of the practice (lower and upper secondary schools).

The partial aim of the study programme is, at the same time, to prepare the graduate who will be able to independently search, critically judge and adequately use various informational sources, that will make possible for him to flexibly react on the changeable requirements of the practice and who will be motivated to the further self-education and continuous self-development.
