 Specialisation Description

The Master’s programme in Czech studies extends the education gained in the Bachelor's degree programme by furthering the knowledge of literary science, including literary history, and the knowledge of modern linguistic and literary theoretical methods. The programme emphasizes theoretical education, study of methods and their application both in linguistic and literary-historical disciplines. Students are directed towards critical creative work, especially critical reflection of theoretical knowledge and their use in the interpretation of artistic texts. A large choice of elective courses (or optional ones) allows students to become more specialized in individual aspects of the field.
