The Masters in Russian or East European History at Indiana University Bloomington is designed for those students with a keen interest in Russia and Eastern Europe who have not yet mastered the relevant languages nor had an opportunity to develop the competitive breadth in understanding this area necessary to competitively pursue a Doctoral degree.


The Russian or East European History program combines language study in any relevant language offered at IU through the summer program and the academic year.  This enables students to take up to 4 levels of language in two academic years in combination with History coursework and a selection of courses in other related disciplines that focus upon Russia and Eastern Europe. 

Students who complete the program will emerge with both a strong grounding in the relevant research language(s) and an enhanced understanding of the history, politics, and culture of Russia and Eastern Europe.
