Program Description:

The University of Kansas is the only university in the central United States to offer the doctoral degree in Slavic Languages and Literatures. The department has a full array of language, literature, and linguistics courses for students interested in the study of Russian, Polish, and Croatian/Serbian, and occasionally offers courses in Bulgarian, Czech, Slovene, Ukrainian, and other Slavic languages and literatures. Particular strengths are in Russian intellectual history and Western-South Slavic Linguistics (BCS, Slovene). While working in a department that offers an uncommonly supportive and congenial atmosphere, students are given considerable latitude to plan programs of study that fit their individual needs.


KU is accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges.
