The four-year doctoral program in the Faculty of Oriental Studies at the University of Warsaw provides a unique opportunity in Europe to gain in-depth knowledge of the Orient, while also creating a possibility to acquire the skills of using basic cognitive linguistics tools to examine various aspects of culture and cross-linguistic inter-cultural communication. The program encourages respect for linguistic and cultural variation, and prepares students to be competent experts on a selected Oriental or African culture, with a clear understanding of the challenges and the opportunities stemming from diversity and communication across cultures. Students get acquainted with the latest developments in oriental studies and in cognitive linguistics. They additionally receive training in research methods and dissemination, selected web-based tools to enhance their academic work, and pedagogical approaches to teaching languages, literatures, and cultures, all of which position the program’s graduates to excel in their research and future career.
