The candidate will be notified in writing of the decision on the subject of his or her thesis approval. The fee associated with the procedure will be paid afterwards.

A candidate for the exam must be a graduate from identical or similar study programme (teaching programme Russian language or non-teaching programme Russian language and literature). In case of ambiguity, the dean of the faculty makes the final decision.

The exam consists of an oral exam and a thesis defense. The oral exam consists of either Russian linguistics or literary science, depending on the topic of the student´s thesis. The second part of the oral exam is either philosophy (for PhDr.) or didactics (for PaedDr.). The candidate may propose his/her own topic, which after the thesis advisor´s agreement the department will submit to the commission for post-graduate study for approval.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the departmental study coordinator PhDr. Lukáš Gajarský, PhD. (lukas.gajarsky(zav.)
