Program Description:

KUÆs graduate program in Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies trains specialists in the areas of Russia, the Caucasus, Central Asia, and East and Central Europe.

Students in the M.A. program take courses in politics, literature, economics, history, sociology, geography, philosophy, and religion.
