Doctoral School of Languages and Literatures


Training in the Doctoral School of Languages and Literatures is provided in the following disciplines:


A systematic study of human language, synchronous and diachronic, theoretical and applied, specific and general. Its subject is both the differences between individual languages and the commonalities of languages that give consideration to the qualities of the human mind. Linguistics covers many areas concerning various aspects of language: phonetics, phonology, syntax, semantics, philosophy, psychology and sociology of language, cognitive, corpus and sycnchronic-comparative linguistics, digital languages, language history, language teaching, etc.Linguistics is of an eminently interdisciplinary nature, as it enters into relationships with various scientific disciplines, e.g. semantics with philosophy, phonetics with physics, didactics with psychology, speech therapy with medicine.

Literary studies

A discipline within the humanities, dealing with the study of literature in both synchronic and diachronic terms. It is a study of works of imagination/ fiction, traditionally divided into lyric, epic and drama, and today related to a broadly defined category of text. The most general division of literary studies distinguishes history, theory and literary criticism, but alongside it there are many other terms that describe the subjects of scientific description, e.g. literary documentary studies, theories and methodologies of literary research, theories and practices of interpretation, anthropology and sociology of literature, text criticism, etc.It includes a number of methods of studying the diversity of approaches to human experience using creative language. Literary texts are fundamental documents for the study of national histories, world events, individual psyche, race, class, gender, science, economy, religion, the natural world, leisure, and other arts. Literary studies, related to many areas of scientific research, are essentially interdisciplinary field.
