Course Overview

The Baltic region plays a significant part in the political, economic and cultural life of both Europe and the world. Its countries actively develop international relations and business opportunities, some of them with Russia. However, the numbers of experts, who can safeguard cross-cultural communication, is alarmingly low.

«Baltica: Languages, Culture, and International Relations», offered by Immanuel Kant BFU, is an extraordinary programme for the Russian educational system. It imparts a broad spectrum of linguistic, linguacultural, and socio-cultural skills, which can advance intercultural communication in the Baltic region.

The course is designed for students with a C1 level of English, and it envisions the possibility of growing these skills to a C2 level. As a second language, our master's students can choose either Polish or German and start from the basics. If students already have a grasp of either of these languages, then an individual learning plan will be offered.

During the course, our master's students receive a key understanding of foreign languages, which they perfect through practice. They study the history and culture of Baltic countries, business etiquette, international law, conflict theory, and cross-cultural communication.

The programme is taught in English.

Course Uniqueness

The unique location of Immanuel Kant BFU makes it part of a wide network of universities. These partner connections in the Baltic create several expansive opportunities for students. Such events include academic exchanges, participation in international and local summer schools, and large-scale research internships.

Graduates can also choose to travel abroad to deepen their understanding of their country of choice’s language and culture. Additionally, native English speakers teach a number of courses, allowing for a steady grasp of the English language and its standout features.
