Graduate School in Poland (not Business or Teaching)

20 Oct 2011 #1
Hey everyone.
I'm an American student of history and Russian/East Central Europe studies, graduating this year. I'm considering going to Poland for my MA at either Jagiellonian or Wroclaw for Area/EU Studies. My emphasis is on culture, history, and law, and I would like to enhance my credentials through one of these programs. I've already contacted several program directors and looked through the similar posts on the forum for information. I don't want to know "if I should go" or "will I find a job" or anything like that, because I am going to get an additional degree (JD or PhD track) afterwards.

One of my major incentives to go to Poland is language development (I've had 5 university semesters of Russian, would love to add Polish) and experience at archiving/primary research within Poland. Another reason is that I want a first hand encounter with the political culture and state of historic lustration in Poland. (Lustration, for non-historians out there, is how a group of people interpret the meaning of it's collective past and use it in the present. Wiki: Lustration for more information.)

I have some specific questions about the programs' reputations that I obviously cannot get from the program directors and websites. However all insights are welcome and appreciated :)))

What is the caliber of the students who attend the graduate English language programs? Can anyone give me a GPA range? Do certain characteristics outweigh others? ie; country of origin, etc.
