Polish at Oxford
Oxford offers four graduate programmes which, depending on your choice, may include a substantial Polish component, including Polish language, literature, history and society:
- The one-year M.St. and the two-year M.Phil. in Slavonic Studies give students the opportunity to specialize in Polish as their second Slavonic language, and to choose from a range of options including Polish history, literature, linguistics and philology.
- The M.St. and M.Phil. in Medieval and Modern Languages (Literature) allow students to specialize in literary studies, with a compulsory course in literary theory or methodology and a large variety of other options. These can include Polish literature and culture.
- The M.St. and M.Phil. in General Linguistics and Comparative Philology include options in Polish linguistics and philology.
- Finally, there is the one-year M.Sc. and the two-year M.Phil. in Russian and East European Studies. This course has a strong component of history, politics and economics, but also includes a cultural component and literary options.
Oxford also warmly welcomes applications from students who wish to pursue doctoral research in Polish.
Note: Polish language tuition is available for Master's and for doctoral students whose course or research includes elements in Polish studies.
