The MA in Russian Studies combines intensive, advanced study of the Russian language with cultural literacy, based upon historical and theoretical analysis of cultural and socio-political developments in Russia. The faculty’s interdisciplinary strengths include literature, cinema, folklore, literary/ cultural theory, cultural studies, gender studies, sociolinguistics, pedagogy, minority studies, and nationalism. The faculty works closely with students to design their own course of study. Some Russian MA students receive a teaching assistantship and tuition waiver.
