The diversity of competences acquired in this master’s program, as well as the teaching methods, which are primarily based on dynamic and interactive teaching, make the program equally appealing to all those who are already building or plan to pursue a career in the field of business relations, as well as translation and teaching areas. At the same time, based on the program’s elaborate structure, students achieve competences that not only qualify them for independent work and enhance their process of critical thinking, but the door is open to them for further academic and professional improvement.

In this course students will be introduced to both theory and techniques of academic writing, i.e. writing of scientific research papers (introducing the basic concepts, analysing data, presenting and interpreting results, drawing conclusions, etc.), in a multi-use way. As a result, after they master theoretical and practical basics, students will become ready for further independent, first research, and then scientific work.

This course will thoroughly acquaint students with the characteristics of the English language for specific and academic purposes, but it will also enable them to distinguish all the constituent elements of these areas. At the same time, students will be introduced to the potential difficulties that may arise when acquiring and/or teaching languages for specific and academic purposes, and they will be enabled to respond adequately to such difficulties and successfully overcome them.

In this course students master the postulations of the theories of language acquisition (first, second, foreign) in a wider sense; at the same time, the course tends to illuminate the phenomena that accompany the above, but belong to the framework of cognitive linguistics, and pragmatics – with the aim of pointing out the importance of the cooperation of these disciplines in the aforementioned processes; the entire process, from the creation of thought to its articulation – in native or other languages – is in this course perceived both through the person who acquires the language, and the one who, potentially, teaches the language.

Project Assignment 1 enables students to independently access, select and study different sources (of literature), and their subsequent interpretation, analysis, synthesis and application in the process of research/scientific writing. In fact, the course will, at the same time, through personal experience and personalized topics, enable students to put into practice the knowledge gained in the Scientific Research Methodology course.

This course enables students to correctly use and differentiate concepts in the field of Finance and Banking – at the same time, students become confident in knowing the equivalent terms in two languages – Serbian and English – and can also use them for communicating in a business environment, translating professional terminology, as well as teaching language for specific purposes.

Contemporary Education Psychology will enable students to acquire knowledge of the concepts in the field of psychology that are primarily related to phenomena of educational psychology (together with cognitive psychology), as well as to pedagogical approaches to the broad spectrum of the above; in this way, applying the acquired knowledge to the field of language, students are trained to work with children, teenagers and adults, they are ready to recognize psychological patterns, to approach them and facilitate teaching processes in an adequate way.

The Basics of Business Relationships 2 course, which is focused on the field of Accounting and Auditing, enhances students’ knowledge of the concepts in the field, their differentiation and use in both Serbian and English. The acquired knowledge can be used for communicating in a business environment, translating professional terminology, as well as teaching language for specific purposes.

This course trains students to understand, differentiate, and use practical concepts in the fields of Marketing, Management and Human Resources. Through the activities that form part of this course, students become confident in knowing the equivalent terms from the field in two languages - Serbian and English - and can apply their knowledge in a business environment, in translation processes, but also in teaching processes.

Psychology of Assessment is a course which illustrates the collaboration of personality psychology and psychology of evaluation, i.e. its impact on testing and assessment in foreign language teaching. In this course, students are trained to incorporate the acquired knowledge, which represents the synergy of the prominent concepts in the field of psychology of personality and evaluation, in the very process of assessment, being already familiar with its basics and forms, and, eventually, to recognize the psychological effects that can be part of foreign language assessment.

By writing and defending the final paper - master's thesis, i.e. completing practical research-oriented thesis and undertaking the oral exam (viva voce), the student shows an independent and creative approach in applying theoretical knowledge and practical skills in future practice within the scope of this study program or in other related fields.

The course will introduce students to the characteristics and importance of the correct (and expected) language forms in a business environment (in a variety of forms) and for business purposes. As a result, students will be able to respond to all the needs of a modern language environment, in terms of language usage, but also to impart their knowledge to others and make proper use of the learned concepts.

This course examines the phenomenon of the modern environment in which language teaching is carried out, but also points to the needs of such an environment, that is, of pupils in such an environment. This course trains students to respond adequately in these circumstances, but it also trains them for effective and efficient teaching of (primarily foreign) language.

This course first acquaints students with the most important postulates of humanism and its application in the education process, and, within its framework, language teaching; then, in fact, it facilitates the practical application of human techniques in the prospective processes of perception or teaching itself. As a result, students are enabled to better understand the influence of human nature on the process of language acquisition/learning, i.e., to perceive various phenomena of the language learning and language teaching in a completely different way.
