Combined bachelors programme in Slovene, involving lectures in Slovene literature, history, life and culture, and most importantly in language. Students can also take subjects from the other two similarly structured Slavic modules, Bulgarian and Polish, and from general Slavic framework. Year 2 students spend a semester at one of the Slovene universities. Since the academic year 2010/2011 there is also a continuation of the Slavic Studies programme (second baccalaureate level). This takes a cultural-historical approach and includes a continuation of Slovene language from the first level, as well as other literary and cultural subjects with a wider Slavic Studies content.

Slovene language is a degree and masters level language specialisation within the programme Southeast European Studies, which since February 2010 has been carried out by the newly established Chair of South Slavic in Balkan Studies. Practical language classes and selected linguistics subjects linked to the selected language take place within the language specialisation, while since the last accreditation cultural subjects, and to some extent literary historical ones, have been formed in line with the concept of area (geopolitical-cultural) studies. The number of hours devoted to national content has thus been reduced and combined with related content of the other language specialisations (in which Slovene has equal status with other languages within the Seminar – Bulgarian, Croatian and Serbian, plus now Albanian and Romanian). Combined degree programmes are also possible, with a language from another department.
Slovene is also an optional course, at beginners and intermediate level, for all students at Charles University and an elective subject on the MA programme (years 1 and 2 second level study) of other language specialisations at the Chair.
