In exceptional cases it may be also submitted in one of the official languages of the European Union, pending the decision of the Head of the MA Studies at the Faculty of Polish Studies and the Head of the Academic Council at the Faculty of History.
Graduate's profile
The graduates will obtain general knowledge and orientation in the field of humanities with a broad perspective on Polish history and culture from ancient times until now. They will explore in detail the transformations of Polish history, language, literature, theatre, and Jewish traditions that developed in Poland. The MA Studies allows students to take on independent research challenges with the support and direction of their advisers, and such projects may be a great step on the way to start a PhD programme. After receiving an MA diploma graduates will be well prepared to work in cultural and public institutions that promote knowledge about Polish history, culture, and language, as well as Jewish traditions, they might work for schools, universities, research centers, archives, libraries, and editing houses.
