Monash University conducts teaching and research in Ukrainian language, literature, history and culture within the School of Languages, Literatures, Cultures and Linguistics.
The Ukrainian Studies program introduces students to the second largest Slavic country, its language, culture and history. Since its emergence as an independent country in 1991 Ukraine has turned into a place attractive to foreign observers, investors, policymakers, tourists and academics.
Undergraduate programs are available for students with little or no previous knowledge of Ukrainian, as well as students already competent in Ukrainian. Students may take Honours in Ukrainian Studies. A Diploma in Languages (Ukrainian) is also available.
The Ukrainian Studies program offers its students opportunities for studying abroad. There is an exchange agreement with Lviv National University in Ukraine allowing Monash students to do part of their studies there.
Ukrainian Studies staff supervise Ph.D. and Masters candidates on topics in Ukrainian Studies. Research and publication in Ukrainian Studies focus on contemporary and modern Ukrainian literature and culture and 19th and 20th century Ukrainian history.
Monash Ukrainian Studies staff co-operate with the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine and several Ukrainian universities, as well as international and national associations for Ukrainian Studies and Slavic Studies.
Ukrainian Studies at Monash University have strong links with Ukrainian community organisations and are supported by the Ukrainian Studies Support Fund of the Association of Ukrainians in Victoria as well as the Foundation of Ukrainian Studies in Australia, which contributed generously to the establishment of the Foundation of Ukrainian Studies in Australia Lectureship at Monash University.
