The Mykola Zerov Centre for Ukrainian Studies offers Ukrainian in a beginners and an advanced stream. Both can be taken for one, two or three years to achieve a sequence, minor or major in Ukrainian studies. Both streams feature composite units, which aim not only to develop students' competence in the written and spoken language, but also to introduce them to modern Ukrainian literature, culture and history, as well as the political life of the Ukraine today.
The Ukrainian studies program convenor retains the right to determine the proper proficiency level for any particular student. Students are not permitted to accelerate their enrolment without first consulting the program convenor.
