Ewa Bachminska

Senior Lecturer of Polish Language



Ewa Bachminska teaches all levels of Polish and a film analysis course, Animals in Global Cinema. She is also a PhD Candidate in Animal Science. In her research, she compares the animal welfare of European and American bison.  

Ewa strongly supports her students in applying for grants to conduct research in Poland. Eight of her students received such grants so far.  


Here are some excerpts of her student evaluations: 

"If I'm ever a teacher, I'd like to be one like Ewa."

"Ewa is one of the best teachers I have ever had. She's very understanding and very patient."

"Professor Bachminska is excellent at what she does! She nurtures a welcoming, understanding, and enthusiastic classroom atmosphere, speaking honestly about all aspects of Polish culture, language, and history."  

"The culture presentations were very informative, and it was rather astonishing to me that the instructor solicited questions from us, around which she centered her presentations. Doing this for multiple classes every semester seems like a lot of work."
