Degree Program in Polish Studies, Study Abroad in Poland – Offered by University of St. Thomas

Good news for Houston Polonia and those who want to study Polish!

University of St. Thomas Houston just announced a new program in Polish Studies. Beginning in fall 2021, undergraduates can earn a minor in Polish Studies in online courses for college credit: Introduction to Polish culture, the history of Poland in the 20th century, and Polish language. Additional courses will be added in the future.

With the presence of so many people of Polish ancestry in Houston and all over the state of Texas, combined with the rising importance of Poland as an economic and strategic ally of the United States, the time seems right to launch this program in Polish Studies at the University at St. Thomas,” Dr. John Hittinger, director of the JPII Institute, said.
