The study of Poland, its language, culture, and history, has been a part of Indiana University’s curriculum for decades. Polish studies have continued to expand as an area of focus in IU coursework with the support of the Polish Studies Center. Through the IU Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures and the Russian and East European Institute (REEI), the university offers:
- Polish language training through the third-year level during the academic year and a summer intensive language program;
- A large collection of Polish materials to support dissertation and other advanced research;
- Faculty and student exchange programs with Warsaw University and Jagiellonian University (Krakow);
- Courses about Poland and Eastern Europe in a variety of fields (history, literature, politics, anthropology).
