Description

Ukrainian studies offers Ukrainian in introductory, intermediate and proficient streams. Each stream feature composite units, which aim not only to develop students' competence in the written and spoken language, but also to introduce them to modern Ukrainian literature, culture and history, as well as the political life of the Ukraine today.

Outcomes

Upon successful completion of the minor students will be able to:

  • read and translate or interpret a range of texts in Ukrainian for social and professional use
  • demonstrate a developed knowledge of the aspects or periods of Ukrainian culture and literature studied, as well as familiarity with the historical context
  • demonstrate knowledge of theoretical frameworks for the analysis and interpretation of literary and other cultural texts, and apply relevant research, analytic and interpretive skills
  • use mostly discipline-specific language and appropriate genres to demonstrate knowledge and understanding within a field from a scholarly perspective and for a specified audience.

Right of school to determine entry level and approve accelerated enrolment

The Ukrainian studies program convenor retains the right to determine the proper proficiency level for any particular student. Students are not permitted to accelerate their enrolment without first consulting the program convenor.

Non-arts students

Students who want to study Ukrainian as part of their non-arts course should consult the managing faculty of their course to determine the number and year level of language units for which they are permitted to enrol.

Language study abroad program

The Ukrainian studies program has links to universities in L'viv and Kyiv and encourages students to take a summer school or a semester of study in the Ukraine. Students can choose to study an approved subject in Ukrainian at a foreign institution in semester one or two. For detailed information contact the Ukrainian studies program.
