Poland has great historical prominence in European history and in global politics. Its people have made enormous contributions in the fields of art, history, philosophy and linguistics. The establishment and growing preeminence of the European Union as a major cultural, social, economic and political entity has resulted in an increased focus on this critical part of the world. Chicago is home to the largest population of Polish Americans in the United States, and the demand for university course offerings in Polish culture is very high.

Loyola’s Polish studies minor is an interdisciplinary program that includes a comprehensive range of courses designed to provide students with an enriched and valuable learning experience. This minor appeals to the growing number of Loyola students who come from Polish and Eastern/Central European backgrounds, and those interested in studying this particular culture. The curriculum consists of courses in Polish language and literature, with additional course offerings in related history, political science, economics, sociology, philosophy, theology and international studies.
