Faculty of Foreign Languages
The Faculty of Foreign Languages has been training philologists for more than 20 years.
Training of philology specialists began in the 1960s as part of the Faculty of History and Philology. In 1992 on the basis of this Faculty there was established a structural subdivision “Faculty of Foreign Languages”. First foreign languages, which were taught at the Faculty, were Russian, English, German and French.
Since September 2015, the Faculty carried out educational activities on the basis of Poltava University of Economics and Trade, located at the address: 3, Kovalia Str., Poltava.
At the moment, the Faculty of Foreign Languages has a wide number of students and provides training for degree “Bachelor” in the following specialties: Language and Literature (English); Language and Literature (French and English); language and literature (German and English); Language and Literature (Spanish and English); Language and Literature (Russian and English); Philology: Language and Literature (Chinese and English); Language and Literature (Japanese and English); Language and Literature (English and Arabic). Students also have the opportunity to study at the educational and qualification level of Master. The quality of the educational process is provided by a combination of full-time education and e-learning, which opens up new opportunities for both students and teachers.
Currently, active work is held to attract foreigners to studying at the Faculty of Foreign Languages. One of the prerequisites for moving to Poltava was the need to create the conditions for a comfortable and fulfilling work and training of Ukrainian and foreign students.
