Czech Studies at The University of Texas at Austin

The Czech studies program at UT Austin resides within the Department of Slavic and Eurasian Studies, which offers Bachelor’s, Master’s, and Doctorate degrees in Russian or Czech literature and linguistics. The University of Texas at Austin has a long, distinguished, and uninterrupted history in Czech studies. The language has been taught here since 1914 (a year before Russian was introduced into the curriculum). UT Austin is one of the few institutions in the United States, which still offers a Bachelor’s degree in Czech studies and the only one to offer a doctorate.
