Minor in Slovak Studies
An undergraduate minor in Slovak studies motivates students to continue with their language and culture studies in a meaningful way. This program would be particularly useful for students majoring in anthropology, political science, and history, many of whom focus their work on Slovakia or Central Europe and see Slovak language and culture as a gateway to the study of the area. Several of the graduates with considerable work in Slovak at Pitt have been offered jobs at the Pentagon, international nonprofit and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), Radio Free Europe, and the U.S. Department of State.
Students who are interested in the minor may tailor their course selections according to the focus of their interest in the Slovak language or in Slovak culture.
