Faculty of Philology and Arts is the youngest member of the University of Kragujevac. It was founded in 2003. and it comprises three schools: School of Philology and Arts, School of music and School of Applied Arts. The School of Philology is the one participating in this project, and for this reason I will tell you something more about language departments whose academic staff will contribute to achieving the goals of our project/REFLESS.
There are 5 language departments at the school of philology, they are as you can see in this slide… The four foreign language departments will allocate their human and other resources throughout the life of the REFLESS project in order to help the consortium achieve its goals. Department of English language and literature is the largest department in the Faculty of Philology and Arts, currently enrolling over 500 students, and employing 19 teaching staff and a number of visiting scholars. Other departments are smaller, but they also enroll a significant number of students and employ highly educated and well experienced academic staff. At all departments, students acquire knowledge of two foreign language, literature, and culture, and curricula are career-based so that graduates are equipped to pursue a variety of professions, from teaching, to jobs in the field of culture and communication.
Foreign language studies at Faculty of Philology and Arts follow a three-cycle pattern, and the study programmes for bachelor and master courses have already been accredited by the National Accreditation Board. However, there is still room for improvement and for this reason our Faculty decided to join the Consortium and redesign its curricula in order to make them more attractive to prospective students, and in order to introduce a master’s course in translation and interpreting. This particular strand of our project will result in offering new profile of graduate students which should enhance their employability as well as the overall rating of our department.
Faculty of Philology and Arts will work actively in three-cycle structure change from 4+1+3 to 3+2+3 structure; modernisation of the curricula in terms of content, teaching and assessment methods and materials; design and implementation of T&I master.
