The Learning Environment
The Polish Studies Program aspires to engage students, scholars and the community whose knowledge and interests center on the Polish experience. The Program’s mission involves a broad approach to the discipline that situates Polish-ness in its historical contexts of cosmopolitanism, transnationalism and diaspora. 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. The program offers only a minor (no major). The Minor in Polish Studies consists of two tracks: the Culture and Society track and the Language track. You can choose to do one or the other (or even both).
