The study of Slovak language and culture helps students to become acquainted with one of the newest members of the European Union and a relatively new independent, sovereign, and democratic nation (1993). Beginning Slovak (SL 101-102) develops novice levels in skills of reading, understanding, writing, and speaking Slovak. IC [International Cultures] 230 and IC 231 enable students to read in English classic Slovak short fiction since 1800 through the present in the context of two other Slavic literatures–Russian and Czech.
