Polish Studies at University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point
The Institution and its Semester Abroad in PolandThe University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point is one of the thirteen campuses in the University of Wisconsin System. Founded in 1894, it is located in Portage County, the home of one of the oldest Polish-American communities in the United States. Polish immigrants settled here, built solid farming communities and contributed mightily to the growth of the city of Stevens Point. In 1975 the University became the first one in the post-World War II era to establish a cooperative program with a Polish university.
Currently, the 15 week Fall Semester Abroad program incorporates a 12 weeks period in residence at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow. A UW-System faculty member, or appointee accompanies the group and teachs in his or her discipline. Students in the program are asked to take Conversational/Survival Polish. Other classes are taught by Polish faculty in English and deal with material in the Humanities and Social Sciences; Art History; the Culture and Civilization of Poland; the History of Poland; and East European Politics. @
