*Not a baccalaureate degree program
Polish Studies is a program within the Department of Transnational Studies that intends to train students in the spoken and written Polish language and to deepen their knowledge of and interest in the literature, history and culture of Poland. We seek to provide a contemporary international perspective that reflects the nation's new position as a member of the European Union, incorporating, at the same time, the Polish experience outside of Poland as reflected in the Polish community in Buffalo.
Poland has contributed to world culture and civilization in almost every area, and the tradition of sustaining a rich cultural life is reflected in the output by Polish painters and musical composers and in the number of Nobel prizes for literature won by Polish citizens. We aspire to engage students, scholars and the community whose knowledge and interests center on the Polish experience.
