Master of Arts Degree in Russian, East European and Central Asian Studies

Location: Ellison Center, University of Washington (USA)
Duration: 2 years
Deadline for applications: Jan. 3, 2008

The program

The Master of Arts Degree in Russian, East European and Central Asian Studies involves interdisciplinary study which allows students a great deal of flexibility in designing a course of study to meet career goals calling for area expertise.

Each student's program combines instruction in at least one language with interdisciplinary training. The Master of Arts Degree program ordinarily lasts two years and is designed (1) to provide a terminal degree for students preparing for careers in government and non-governmental organizations, journalism, business or teaching at the pre-college level; and (2) to provide area training for students wishing to pursue a PhD degree in a discipline.

The curriculum, which is especially strong in the social sciences, history and regional cultures, encompasses courses in a wide range of departments, including Anthropology, Comparative Literature, Economics, Geography, History, Linguistics, Near Eastern Languages and Civilization, Political Science, Scandinavian Studies, Slavic Languages and Literatures and Sociology. Independent study may be arranged to do work in other fields where there may be no regularly offered area courses.

Languages offered by the program

Language instruction is offered on a regular basis in Russian through the advanced level, all three Baltic languages, and in most major modern languages of Eastern Europe and Central Asia. Often it is possible to arrange independent study in relevant languages that are not offered regularly. Intensive programs offer the opportunity to do a full year's language work during summer quarter.
