Oriental Studies: Mongolian and Tibetan Studies, are unique and although the main emphasis is placed on studying culture and religion, as all humanities, they are very interdisciplinary. This unique didactic program is being undertaken only at the Oriental Faculty of the University of Warsaw. At this Faculty African and Oriental cultures and languages have been taught on the highest level for almost 90 years, including Mongolian and Tibetan languages. As a result this unique field – Oriental Studies: Mongolian and Tibetan Studies, have been created. It has been based on many years of experience and practice in teaching and researching problems of the Inner Asia region, particularly Mongolia and Tibet. Lecturers are specialists – often the only ones in Poland – in this geographic and cultural area. Their advanced research has resulted in numerous publications in Polish and international periodicals. Language classes are conducted by native speakers. Additionally, in order to upgrade their qualification and language skills, students have the possibility to travel to Mongolia for a language or research training.

The second degree studies: Oriental Studies – Mongolian and Tibetan Studies enable students to continue learning through deepened analysis of cultural phenomena as well as learning Mongolian and Tibetan languages. High specialization of people continuing these studies comes up ahead of current social and even economic needs, which can be certified by presumed study results. The program offers acquiring specialized knowledge of Mongolian and Tibetan studies and their methodology as well as diversified practical knowledge of Asian and African cultures in the cognitive perspective which translates into skills and cognitive-hermeneutic competence, very much needed in today’s globalized world. Students will know and understand the value of cultural diversity, and perceive the value of their own culture by learning about others. Teaching in English opens the door to foreign universities as part of students’ exchange. Internationalizing Mongolian-Tibetan studies will enable students to become accustomed to and function in a multicultural research and academic environment.

The comprehensive education provided by the program of Oriental Studies – Mongolian and Tibetan Studies, also encompasses widely understood humanities, which allows later to undertake interdisciplinary research and understand the roots of modern world’s problems as well as attempt to find solutions to them. It provides students with a broad horizon, necessary for understanding today’s problems and conflicts arising from civilization differences. The program makes it possible to educate new teaching staff in the field of culture and religion, and other academic disciplines. The new staff will contribute to developing new methodologies and concepts aimed at best mutual understanding.

Implementation of the program for Oriental Studies – Mongolian and Tibetan Studies, allows its participants to achieve cognitive synergy and shape a new trend of thinking and social awareness, part of which are so much needed today understanding, openness and tolerance towards others as well as realizing values of one’s own culture and ethical demeanor of the European as well as Mongolian and Tibetan cultural spheres.

Knowledge acquired by graduates of Oriental Studies – Mongolian and Tibetan Studies, will allow them to move around and properly talk about general issues of theory and practice of Mongolian and Tibetan culture. Graduates will understand the diversities of cultures and civilizations, and be able to participate in the process of communication and intercultural cooperation. They will acquire basis for theoretical reflection on Mongolian and Tibetan cultures, and be able to analyze fundamental processes occurring in that cultures. The tool for this analysis will be a good linguistic and methodological preparation in the field of culture, religion, linguistics, philosophy, history and literature.

Graduates will be able to work in cultural institutions, media, publishing houses and public administration. The more and more intense economic ties with the world of Mongolian and Tibetan culture create a demand for experts who know languages and cultural-social realities of the countries of the region. Political and diplomatic contacts require hiring specialists in languages and cultures of Mongolia and Tibet, and graduates of Oriental Studies – Mongolian and Tibetan Studies, are such specialists. Having acquired this education, graduates of the second degree studies will be able to undertake the third degree studies and compete for research grants, participate in the works of international institutions dealing with various contacts with Mongolia and the Tibetans, and cooperate with main Oriental centers in the world, including those in Asia and Africa.
