Those graduates who will achieve very good results in their studies can try to follow up in the master program Czech Language and Literature (“Czech for Native Czechs”), other masters programs in the Faculty of Arts, Faculty of Social Studies or to study Slavic philology in their native countries.
The follow-up master’s degree programme Czech for foreigners is an internal part of Philology 7310. Apart from professional knowledge in Czech linguistics and literature, the students acquire the ability to compare and contrast Slavic languages. The interdisciplinary focus of the programme widens the students‘ perspectives and equips them for the doctoral studies of Czech language and literature at the Faculty of Arts in Prague as well as other places in the Czech republic.
The graduates’deep knowledge of linguistic and literary theory enables them to work for example in research or education in the fields of Bohemistics or Slavistics.
The graduates are fluent speakers of Czech who understand currently spoken language as well as various kinds of written texts – including literary and (with some preparation) highly professional texts. Their oral and written production is clearly structured and stylistically adequate, containing phraseological and idiomatic expressions. The graduates‘ linguistic competence reaches the C1 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, and together with deep knowledge in linguistic and literary theory enables them to work in research or education in the fields of Bohemistics or Slavistics.They are also ready for doctoral studies of the Czech language and literature as well as general linguistics or Slavistics at Charles University in Prague or at other universities.
Thanks to deep interdisciplinary knowledge and practical skills in the fields of the Czech language and literature, linguistics and Slavistics, the graduates are ready to work for a wide range of professional and cultural institutions as for example language teachers in language schools (for Czech state high schools and universities further qualification is required). The graduates can also work in research or undertake doctoral studies in the field at the Faculty of Arts of Charles University in Prague as well as other universities (including institutes of Bohemistics and Slavistics abroad), and even enter diplomatic service.
