Jagiellonian University adds new programs: 8 of 13 in English
Krakow’s Jagiellonian University will be adding this year 13 new programs, over half of which will be in English.
Global and Environmental Studies as well as Earth Sciences in a Changing World will be taught at the undergraduate level in English. In Polish, students can get a BA in Latin American Studies, Molecular and Cellular Biophysics, Organisation and Economics of Health Care (Faculty of Health Sciences), and Polish-Ukrainian Studies – surely to be relevant with the enormous increase in Ukrainian immigrants to Poland in the past few years.
At the master’s level, new English-language programs include Korean Studies, Comparative Heritage Studies (with a focus on Krakow as a UNESCO World Heritage Site), Drug Discovery and Development (in the Faculty of Pharmacy), Environmental Protection and Management (Faculty of Biology), Intellectual Property and New Technologies, and International Security and Development. Contemporary Buddhist Studies and Medicinal Chemistry master’s degrees can be obtained in Polish.
Jagiellonian University (UJ) is the oldest university in Poland and one of the oldest in the world, having been founded in 1364 by Casimir III the Great. You can find more information about these academic programs on their website.
