The objectives of our Faculty are related to initiating and training students in the philological field, as well as in that of communication sciences. Thus, we conceive flexible courses well adapted to social conditions. At the same time, the objectives and thematic areas of each subject revalue the most modern trends in the field.
The modules offered by our faculty provide the students with training and instruction in the large area of humanities, assisting them into acquiring abilities specific to the field of philology and communication sciences, but also team work skills and the capacity to collaborate with specialists in other domains.
By recruiting students from all the Romanian provinces, and also from the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine, our faculty aims at ensuring the optimal instruction level, against the background of an extremely dynamic society and that of the present tendency towards a globalization of labour force. The expertise of the graduates of our faculty meets the scientific and professional requirements necessary in the labour market of Romania and the European Union. Thus, they are prepared not only for a teaching career, but also for scientific research and other activities specific to public servants.
The research activities in the field are conducted within the Bukovina Seminar of Philology, as well as within the Inter Litteras and Discourse Analysis research centers.
