The Minor in Ukrainian Studies is an interdisciplinary study of Ukrainian culture, language, history, religion and politics from historical and cross-cultural perspectives. The Ukrainian Studies Minor will provide students with the opportunity, on one end, to engage in the multidisciplinary nature of Ukrainian studies. On the other end, students will be able to pursue the study of one or more aspects of Ukrainian culture which are of relevance to their personal interests, field of study, and future career.

This program is coordinated by St. Thomas More College, under the academic authority of the College of Arts and Science. Interested students should email: ukrstudiesminor@stmcollege.ca for more information.

The Minor may be completed in conjunction with any degree in another subject area in the College of Arts and Science. As such, it differs from the former Minor in Ukrainian (language), offered by the Department of Languages and Linguistics until 2001-02.

The Minor average in Ukrainian Studies will be calculated using the grades earned in all courses eligible to be included in the Minor program requirements. Students must complete at least two-thirds of the program requirements (rounded to the nearest highest multiple of 3 credit units) using courses offered by the University of Saskatchewan to meet the Residency requirement.

Not all courses listed in the program requirements are offered every year. Students are advised to consult with the program coordinator (ukrstudiesminor@stmcollege.cato plan their program.
