Polish fulfills the language requirement and the distribution requirement at Cornell.
We offer three levels of the language: elementary, intermediate, and advanced.
Elementary Polish is on MWF.
You can find the Society of Polish Students at Cornell on Facebook.
Polish is a Slavic language hosted by the Romance Studies Department.
Did you know that it is the second most widely spoken Slavic language in the world? It uses Latin script like English, which makes studying it easier.
For information about transfer of credit, please consult our placement page.
