Our Master’s Degree programme in Russian Studies(full-time, 2 years) covers various aspects of Russia’s past and present: language, culture, political and social life. The key issues are identity, modernity and integration in the broader cultural context of Post-Soviet Eurasia, as well as intensive study of Russian language. We provide the courses for those who would like to start a career in exibition buisiness and tourism, mass-media, social centers, cultural foundations or diplomatic agencies.
Identity: defining Russia’s uniqueness
This topic is primarily about the key Russian identity features, including historical and cultural heritage of the country. These courses give you an idea of the present-day variety of Russian identities (course examples: Historical Anthropology of Russia, Russian and Soviet Cinema, Russian Political Thought, Tradition and Memory in Post-Soviet Countries).
Modernity: Russia’s place in the changing world
This topic encourages you to take a more critical approach to the experience of the past. These courses focus on the issues of development and change in the social and political life of modern Russia, while providing a global com- parative prospective (course examples: The Concepts of Modernity, Art and Litereture in Modern Russia, Social Features of a Post-Soviet City, Speech Practices in Modern Russian Language, Post-Soviet Economy).
Integration: the architecture of post-soviet space
This topic is focused mostly on the transnational integration in post-soviet Eurasia. Diplomacy, collaboration, security and environmental issues - all these questions are raised within the ‘integration’ topic (course examples: Social and Economical Geography, International Security and Collaboration, Cross- Cultural Communications).
Studying Russian language is, of course, an obligatory condition for training of any specialist in Russian Studies. Our Master’s Degree programme offers a possibility for perfecting your fluency in Russian with three different teaching courses and tutorials.
