Czech for Foreigners

The study primarily aims at the mediation of language in its instrumental function. Besides practical language teaching, the study will primarily be focused on elementary theoretical instruction on the language system, on Czech literature, history and cultural background. The instruction will be carried out in English which is seen as a mediating language that can help student learn Czech more effectively and as a language of theoretical instruction. English communicational competence (it is supposed that English will not be students’ mother tongue) will also be developed with the aim to prepare students for their professional career in the area of international contacts.

Andragogy

The goal of the Andragogy doctoral study programme is to raise scientifically competent professionals. These competencies are demonstrated by graduates´ autonomy in the area of understanding and developing scientific theories in the context of his/her own research project. The doctoral study programme focuses on the consequences of andragogy in the field of social and human studies and its links to other disciplines – especially to education, sociology and psychology, including their application areas, for instance adult learning and education theories, human resources development and theory of (social and personal) counselling.

Cultural Anthropology

Cultural anthropology is an academic discipline that deals with the study of the origins, development and functioning of sociocultural systems. It is the study of sociocultural norms, ideas and artefacts, which are created, shared and transmitted by humans in the past and present. Cultural anthropology focuses on dynamics of cultural changes in local contexts; its research interest recently aims at global sociocultural processes.  The graduate is capable to discuss current topics of biological, social and cultural anthropology with regard to problems and challenges of present-day societies, intercultural conflicts and social tensions.
