Central European Studies (CES) is conceived as a three-year Bachelor’s programme, divided into the study of a national language (Hungarian, Polish, or Slovak) and the modern literary, social, and political development of Central Europe, particularly of the countries of the so-called Visegrad group. It is a multidisciplinary programme in the vein of language-based area studies, integrating several aspects of the Central European region.
The aim is to educate a specialist with linguistic and academic skills strong enough to navigate the multilingual information resources, and assess critically the current social, cultural and political development of East-Central Europe. Graduates can work in regional development, in the services of linguistic and analytic support for public and private organizations with regional focus, in the service sector or in cultural management.
CES can be taken alone (single subject) or in combination with another study programme (double subject). Double-subject CES can be combined with all double-subject Bachelor study programmes offered at the Faculty of Arts – we recommend Ethnology, Political Science, Linguistics, Phonetics, Comparative Literature, Czech Language and Literature, Romani Studies, German Studies, among others.
