Many students enrolled in the M.A. program are active in various professions, and they bring their professional experience into the classroom. They include teachers, journalists, government employees and businessmen. In addition, the student make-up is truly international in scope, composed of natives of Poland, Ukraine, Russia, the Baltic republics, and the Balkan countries – and Americans of various ethnic descent.
La Salle’s faculty consists of internationally respected scholars in the area of Central and East European cultures, business and history. The program enjoys the enthusiastic support of the Philadelphia area’s ethnic minorities and draws upon the resources of private libraries and archives inaccessible to the general public.
Expertise in Central and Eastern European studies opens doors in many fields. Only an informed and educated person can participate meaningfully in the democratic development of this area. La Salle’s graduates fit that bill. Some students obtain good positions with various companies prior to completion of the program.
