At Uppsala University we carry out research and offer courses in a number of Slavic languages. We have courses in Bulgarian, Polish, Russian and Serbian/Croatian/Bosnian at first and second cycle level. When you chose to study one of these languages at Uppsala University you get a solid education at an academic level, that gives you knowledge in the language, literature and the culture in the language area, including practical language proficiency.
Knowledge in Bulgarian, Polish, Russian and Serbian/Croatian/Bosnian can improve your opportunities in the labour market – both in Sweden and abroad. Knowledge in most Slavic languages is also an aid for mother tongue tuition for migrants in different parts of Sweden.
Courses at first cycle level are given in Bulgarian, Polish, Russian and Serbian/Croation/Bosnian. There are both basic and continuation courses. The first cycle level courses in the Slavic languages are taught as campus courses in Russian and as IT-distance courses in Bulgarian, Polish, Russian and Serbian/Croation/Bosnian.
The courses at first cycle level are generelly offered in separate languages while there is no separation into languages at second cycle level. Those courses are called Slavic languages since the students can focus on several Slavic languages, or they can chose a theme that relates to a broader range of languages and different specialisations, i.e. not only lingustics. Among those are general Slavic studies and old church Slavonic.
