Programs Abroad - Polish

2nd, 3rd & 4th-year Polish

4 or 6 Weeks in Krakow, Poland

Announcement: SLI's Polish program abroad is not currently accepting applications for the 2021 program due to travel restrictions in place in connection with the COVID-19 mitigation effort and uncertainty surrounding the date when Pitt's study abroad programs will resume. This page will be updated should circumstances allow SLI to run its abroad program in Krakow. Students interested in studying Polish in the summer are encouraged to apply to SLI's 6-week domestic program in Pittsburgh or online.

Students who have completed a full academic year of Polish language study and who pass a pre-program placement test may select a 4- or 6-week abroad option. Pitt’s exchange program with the Prolog Language School in Kraków is the five-star way to study Polish in Poland. Prolog brings rave reviews year after year because of the dedication of its teachers, its cutting-edge textbooks, and its wide-ranging offerings of tours and optional after-school activities, at no additional cost. Prolog's language instructors are graduates of the highly-regarded Jagiellonian University Polish Language and Literature Department. According to placement tests students are placed in one of six levels of study, alongside students from all over the European Union, making for a cosmopolitan and high-quality peer group. Courses are registered with the University of Pittsburgh, so that credits transfer automatically to American institutions with no delay or bureaucracy.
