Interests that are a good basis for this study programme
You should have an interest in Slavic languages, their literature and culture. Knowledge of any of these languages is an advantage, but is not a prerequisite for admission to the bachelor’s programme. However, some courses require evidence of the appropriate language skills before you will be permitted to attend.
Slavic Languages, Literature and Culture at the University of Graz
The central focus of this bachelor’s programme is on language learning, linguistics, literary and cultural studies in one or more Slavic languages. You will also be appropriately prepared for further studies at the master’s and doctoral levels.
Your options in the master’s programme
The master’s programmes in Bosnian/Croat/Serbian, Russian or Slovenian build directly on the bachelor’s programme, extending and enhancing what you have already learned. At the University of Graz you also have the option of interdisciplinary master’s programmes and joint programmes, allowing further scope for individualised and specialised learning.
Preparation for a wide range of career paths
As a graduate you will be able to work in professions that require skilled and creative work with texts and communication situations in your selected language and in one (or more) other Slavic languages. These include for instance cultural management, business, education, publishing and communications, public administration in Austria or abroad, diplomacy or migrant support.
To ensure you can participate in all courses right from the start, you must provide proof not only of your general higher education entrance qualification but also of language skills at CEFR level A2 (assessment test or language certificate). Preparatory language courses for the University of Graz are provided by treffpunkt sprachen. During your bachelor’s studies you must also show evidence of Latin language skills (e.g. as part of your secondary school leaving examination, supplementary examination).
