Short description:
The aim of the program is to prepare students to become well-trained specialists in Serbian philology. Students acquire comprehensive knowledge of Serbian literature from its early period to date in a European context, as well as extensive knowledge of Serbian grammar and the history of the Serbian language. Moreover, they get acquainted with the latest linguistic theories, sociolinguistics, textology, lexicology, stylistics and phraseology.
