The "Political Philosophy" Master's program at Ural Federal University is one of the few Master's programs in Political philosophy existing in Russia, which is taught in English.


The program offers a range of courses in modern political philosophy, as well as courses in social research methods. Political Philosophy studies the ways people organize their collective life, and examines what "good society" means. Its particular interest lies with how our critical capacity and individual agency can transform the world we live in. 

The Political Philosophy program at the Ural Federal University has a strong comparative component, as it seeks to balance the Western-oriented canon in political theory with the study of politics by Eurasian and Russian thinkers. In addition to the local faculty members, many of them holding international graduate degrees, classes are taught by professors from partner institutions, such as Utrecht University (Netherlands), Central European University (Hungary) and others.

Program highlights: 

  • Scholarships available for local and international students, based on merit and quality of application materials
  • Subsidized study placement at one of the partner universities abroad (one semester)
