Programme Overview

The two-year Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Research and Studies on Eastern Europe (MIREES) is a joint program offered by the University of Bologna (Italy), Vytautas Magnus University in Kaunas (Lithuania) and the St. Petersburg State University (Russia).
The degree programme is entirely taught in English (120 ECTS) and offers interdisciplinary, in-depth knowledge of post-socialist countries in transition, new EU member states, and new East-European neighbor countries. Students develop language skills by learning one Eastern European language (3 levels of Russian, Bosnian-Croatian-Serbian, Bulgarian, Slovak; Hungarian and Lithuanian are available in the second year).

Enrolled students spend the first year in Forlì. In the second year a minimum of 5 months will be spent at one of the Partner Universities or, in particular cases, at other Mirees associated Universities (Universities of Zagreb and Ljubljana, Corvinus University). A mobility grant is offered to all enrolled students, thanks to Erasmus +  or the MIREES mobility scheme.
