[Naslov na engleskom:].Subject(s): 6.03 | West-Slavic philologies, Croatia, curriculum reform eng In: Challenges for Foreign Philologies. Part 1: The Bologna Process and New Curricula str. 73-82Będkowska-Kopczyk, Agnieszka ; Šarić, Ljiljana & Pavera, LiborSummary: At the University of Zagreb programmes in Czech, Polish and Slovak have always been conceived as traditional philologies, offering predominantly linguistics and literary history courses. In 2009, a survey was conducted among former students of West-Slavic philologies with the aim to learn more about their experiences on the labour market. Most of them claimed that their university studies have not prepared them for their current employments in any way. At the same time, they said that they would have been in a better position if practical language and communication skills had been given more space within the curricula and if interdisciplinary courses, encompassing topics from economics, sociology, political sciences etc., had been offered in a greater number. This indicates that there is an urgent need to change narrowly specialized philology programmes into more widely conceived and more practically conducted West-Slavic studies.
