This biggest and most varied Faculty of Letters is where future Polish studies linguists, journalists, librarians, teachers, and interpreters of many foreign languages pursue their education. Here the Centre for Plain Polish, facilitating changes in the confusing jargon of Polish companies and public agencies has been created, and future Polish studies linguists have classes with Prof. Jan Miodek himself.
Young people pursue their education at first- and second-cycle residential and non-residential studies, and also at postgraduate and doctoral programmes.
The faculty consists of 8 institutes and 1 chair:
Institute of Polish Studies
Institute of English Studies
Institute of German Studies
Institute of Romance Studies
Institute of Slavic Studies
Institute of Classic, Mediterranean and Oriental Studies
Chair of Dutch Studies
Institute of Journalism and Social Communication
Institute of Information and Library Science
Each institute is a vibrant place where research goes beyond the traditional outlook of literary studies or linguistics. It touches upon interdisciplinary and comparative topics, merging different areas of science. In the Institute of Journalism and Social Communication research is focused on painting the linguistic picture of the world, new media, ethics in media, PR and advertismenet theory, language of Polish politics, local media, and systemic theory of mediatisation. The students of the institute annually award Ryszard Kapuściński Student Award for Literary Reportage. The Institute of Information and Library Science develops research on fundamental bibliological disciplines.
At the faculty’s language institutes one can learn English, Czech, Danish, French, Spanish, Dutch, German, Russian, Serbian, Croatian, Ukrainian, Hindi, Sanskrit, Ancient Greek, Latin, Hebrew, Yiddish, Korean, and Chinese.
After classes students can pursue their passions in over 30 scientific groups of the Faculty of Letters.
