In line with its research focus, the Viadrina Center of Polish and Ukrainian Studies pursues the strategy of integrating Polish, Ukrainian, as well as Central and Eastern European studies into as many courses at the Viadrina as possible. For this reason, courses are generally offered in English and German, together with a number of seminars in Polish and Ukrainian, and are aimed at students from all three faculties at all levels of qualification – BA, MA and PhD. 

Our Center applies a variety of methods to provide detailed knowledge of Poland and Ukraine in a European and global context, in-depth methodological knowledge from various disciplines, as well as language skills at an academic level. Excursions to the region complement on-site courses. 

BA and MA students of the Viadrina as well as of other universities in Berlin and Brandenburg will be able to obtain a Certificate in Interdisciplinary Ukrainian Studies offered by the Viadrina Center of Polish and Ukrainian Studies and the Ukrainian lectorate at the Language Center of the European University Viadrina. 

We take part in and contribute to online teaching programs for and together with our colleagues from Ukraine. We will also continue a series of Summer/Winter Transregional Academies for PhD students and early career researchers together with our partners from the New Europe College (Bucharest), the Centre for Advanced Study Sofia and the Forum Transregionale Studien in Berlin. The transregional dimension is an important vehicle for developing the inclusive character of Polish and Ukrainian studies.
