Program Description:

The PhD programs in the Department provide rigorous professional training in Slavic languages, literatures and cultures in a supportive atmosphere and interdisciplinary framework. Taking advantage of the rich opportunities for cross-disciplinary inquiry at the University of Chicago, at such venues as graduate workshops and the Franke Institute for the Humanities, many students in the Slavic Department forge innovative programs of study that cut across traditional boundaries. As the founder of Slavic Forum, a graduate student conference that has continued for over twenty years, our department has a history of promoting rigorous and original scholarship. The Department's academic program, faculty-student mentoring, training in pedagogy and support for research have consistently produced fine scholars who have succeeded in the highly competitive academic job market.


Since 1913, the University of Chicago has been continuously accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association.
