Teaching

The Center attaches great importance to developing a teaching program as a means of promoting urban studies in Lviv, Ukraine and East Central Europe.

As a state-independent institution the Center for Urban History does not itself have the right to grant academic certificates or degrees. Cooperation with universities and other higher institutions of learning do allow, however, students to participate in classes at the Center and receive credits for their achievement.

In 2008, in cooperation with Lviv’s Ukrainian Catholic, the Center’s Academic Director, Tarik Cyril Amar, held a course on the diverse international approaches to Urban History. Bohdan Shumylovych, also from the Center, has lectured on cultural studies, while Viktoriya Sereda from Ivan Franko University held courses on urban sociology.

The Center is planning to continuously expand its teaching activity. Apart from its contacts with local and international academic institutions the Center’s library provides students with a useful source for conducting their research.
