History of the department

The Department of Oriental Studies named after Professor Yaroslav Dashkevych has been a center where the traditions of classical university education are combined with the latest trends in the training of specialists in Oriental languages since its establishment in 1997.
Today the Department trains specialists of the first educational degree (Bachelors of Philology) in five areas of specialization: “Arabic Language and Literature, Ukrainian Language and Literature”, “Persian Language and Literature, Ukrainian Language and Literature”, “Turkish Language and Literature, Ukrainian Language and Literature”, “Chinese Language and Literature, Ukrainian Language and Literature”, “Japanese Language and Literature, Ukrainian Language and Literature”. Also, the Department trains specialists of the second educational degree (Masters of Philology) in five areas of specialization: “Arabic Language and Literature”, “Persian Language and Literature”, “Turkish Language and Literature”, “Chinese Language and Literature”, “Japanese Language and Literature”.
Syllabi are set up in accordance with the standards of international qualification examinations. In addition to Ukrainian, students also have the opportunity to choose another oriental language to study, in particular Korean.
The teaching staff of the Department researches aspects of pragmatics, cognitive linguistics and ethnolinguistics, linguocultural and structural-semantic features of the translation of literary texts, lexico-grammatical and phonetic features of the language systems of the countries of the Middle and Far East.
For twenty years, the Department has been cooperating with scientific institutions, international organizations and universities in Ukraine, Japan, China, Turkey, Iran and a number of Arab countries, which allows its students to participate in projects and governmental programs of these countries, conferences, lectures, master classes, summer schools, internships, as well as in speaking clubs with foreign guests, in particular, with students and teachers of partner universities.
