The aim of the second-cycle studies in Russian Philology is to deepen linguistic competences and to improve practical skills in translation and interpreting. An integral part of the study programme is also the study of English (as part of the "Business English Conversations" course) and a second East Slavic foreign language (choice of Ukrainian or Belarusian). Students of the second degree programme can choose a specialization (translation studies, pedagogy or business language and intercultural communication). The acquired skills and qualifications should enable the graduates to undertake work in the field corresponding or similar to the completed specialization.
