The Department of Czech Studies in Olomouc is one of the oldest university Czech studies programs and is among the top research and educational institutions in the Czech Republic.
It offers complete education in the area of Czech philology, in both its classic form, and also with focus on textological and editorial practice. Studies are implemented as either a bachelor’s or master’s degree and are complemented by didactic and pedagogical programs, which enable students to obtain pedagogical qualifications. Students of the department are in contact with leading researchers in the area of literary science and linguistics.
The department is a centre of many trans-university research projects and maintains contacts with leading domestic and foreign university and research institutes. In the form of regular colloquiums and conferences, which are organized and co-organized at the Philosophical Faculty of Palacky University in Olomouc, it participates in their professional conference life and in this way shapes the up-to-date scientific research in the area.
The Department of Czech Studies publishes its own reviewed periodical ‘Bohemica Olomucensia’, where leading figures of literary science and linguistics, both from the Czech Republic and other countries, publish their contributions. The department is involved in international educational programs.
