About

Overview

The Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies MA program from University of Texas at Austin offers the opportunity to create an individually tailored program.

This region of the world covers over one-sixth of the globe and comprises countries, which differ enormously in language, ethnicity, religion, culture, political history and economic development.

  • gain a broad background in the Russian, East European and Eurasian area.
