I will be teaching within the Faculty of Arts at Constantine the Philosopher University UKF). It is a leading educational and research institution among Slovak universities.  The mission of UKF is to develop education, science, moral behavior art and culture. The university focuses on job- oriented programs to train professionals in a variety of areas. Students determine their program of study based on their own interests, and are required to take a broad range of courses in both humanities and social sciences.

UKF also have Master Degree programs and Doctoral programs. In fact, I am teaching a seminar to Master Degree students in my department. This course is in adddition to two other undergraduate seminars I will teach.  Each Seminar is 90 minutes a week.

Within the College of Arts, UKF has the following programs:

  • Archaeology
  • Cultural studies
  • English & American studies
  • Ethnology & Ethnomusicology
  • General and Applied Ethics
  • German Studies
  • History
  • Journalism
  • Management of Culture and Tourism
  • Museology
  • Philosophy
  • Political Science & European Studies
  • Religious Studies
  • Romance Languages
  • Russian
  • Slovak Language
  • Slovak Literature
  • Sociology
  • Translatology
I am interested to undertand how the Department of Mass Media Communication & Advertising works specifically with the departments of Journalism and Management of Culture and Tourism. 

I know also, that UKF has many cooperative agreements with universities across Europe that allow students to get dual degrees. In the USA, they work with Oswego University. 

I shall know more in a couple of weeks, specifically as I will be going to an academic conference in with all Fulbright recipients  from Slovak Republic and Czech Republic. The conference will be in the city of Olomous, Czeck Republic.
