Minor in Ukrainian Studies

The Minor in Ukrainian Studies is an interdisciplinary study of Ukrainian culture, language, history, religion and politics from historical and cross-cultural perspectives. The Ukrainian Studies Minor will provide students with the opportunity, on one end, to engage in the multidisciplinary nature of Ukrainian studies. On the other end, students will be able to pursue the study of one or more aspects of Ukrainian culture which are of relevance to their personal interests, field of study, and future career.

The Minor may be completed in conjunction with any Three-Year, Four-Year or Honours degree in another subject area in the College of Arts and Science. As such, it differs from the former Minor in Ukrainian (language), offered by the Department of Languages and Linguistics until 2001-02.

Area A — Ukrainian Language courses
Area B — Central Courses in Ukrainian Studies (in Anthropology and Political Studies)
Area C — Courses related to Ukrainian Studies (in Anthropology, Economics, History, Linguistics, Political Studies, Religious Studies)

Not all courses listed in the program requirements are offered every year. Students are advised to consult with the program coordinator (ukrstudiesminor@stmcollege.ca) to plan their program.
