Background and objectives

The Faculty of Philology in Prizren has a tradition of several years. Prizren with the district, and Albanian society in general, had and have a tradition of preserving and developing the Albanian language and culture, spanning the period before and during humanity and enlightenment. This fact is also proven in the scientific way, but it is a powerful pillar for the continuity of the research and scientific tradition. The traditional connection of the Albanian school has continued and has been witnessed even during the period of National Renaissance.
