Semester Abroad Program

Ukrainian Catholic University

Semester Abroad Program is one of the UCU’s study projects offered in English for an international audience. It introduces young intellectuals different cultural backgrounds of Ukrainian heritage within the larger Central-Eastern European context. Our program is designed to help you discover different facets of Ukraine, including its history, culture, theology, identity, political and social life, its contemporary issues and development.

The high academic level of our program is ensured by a team of distinguished Ukrainian scholars and researchers from different disciplines communicating their academic achievements and analyses in a number of specially designed courses unparalleled in any other academic program. Their contributions will provide students with an essential overview of the topics offered.

Diverse fields of humanities are represented in our program, from cultural studies and art to history, politics, economy and theology. Thematic variety of courses enables students to select from among different disciplinary directions according to their academic interests. As a result, a wide panoramic vision of Ukrainian reality is offered from the viewpoint of various academic disciplines.

The Ukrainian environment will facilitate better understanding “from the inside” the theoretical issues discussed and pondered at lectures. Ukrainian language learning offers an additional possibility to more closely approach Ukrainian culture. Living in a modern university campus and having the possibility to communicate with other students, both Ukrainian and international, will help participants to gain first-hand knowledge and personal experience of a surrounding reality.
