Studying on Finno-Ugric Module of PetrSU Master Program
Tatiana Morozova, a graduate of 2020, shares her experience of studying on the program Comparative Studies: Dialogue of Cultures in the World Literature.
“Studying on the Finnish module of the Master Degree program has been particularly valuable and informative for me. Alongside engaging basic courses related to literature studies and comparative studies, the program included courses in the history of the Baltic and Finnish languages, Finno-Ugric studies, stylistics of the Finnish language, translation of scientific papers, methods of teaching the Baltic and Finnish languages, history of the literature of Karelia, and even the second Baltic and Finnish language (Livvic dialect of the Karelian language). A comprehensive study of these courses helps to deepen your knowledge of language and understanding of its functions, gain a clear vision of how it should be taught, as well as a practice in translation of scientific papers, something I’ve never done before. Besides, I want to highlight the teacher practice that turned out to be particularly insightful, while each of us tried his or her hand in teaching. All lectures and seminars were amazing and helped me decide on my future career.
This Master Degree program prepares for a career in various areas of philology such as research, teaching, editorial and production (including in a foreign language), translation, expert analytics, international projects in humanities and education.”
