Ukrainian studies

About Ukrainian studies

We’re the only university in Australia to offer Ukrainian studies. The program develops your skills in written and spoken language, and gives you the opportunity to explore the culture, history, literature and everyday life of Ukraine.

Why study Ukrainian?

Ukraine today is fascinating – it’s a place of reform under duress and an example of a linguistically, ethnically and religiously pluralist society forging a new civic identity. Ukrainian studies gives you insight into a country where some of the great issues of the contemporary world are played out in everyday politics and life.
