About the School
The School of Philology was launched within the Faculty of Humanities on February 2, 2015 following a reorganization of the Faculty of Philology. The school, which brings together specialists in literary studies and interdisciplinary researchers in the field of language arts, houses the Laboratory of Linguo-Semiotic Studies and the Neurolinguistics Laboratory.
The school offers undergraduate and Master’s programmes in Philology, Russian Literature from a Crosscultural Perspective, and Philological Hermeneutics – For Teachers of Literature (this programme is run by the Institute of Development of Education). Research work involving students forms an important part of the school’s academic life.
