About

The Russian and Post-Soviet Politics MA programme offered at the University College London (UCL) is designed to respond to the growing strategic importance of Russia and the former Soviet Union and meet the emerging demand for area-focused academic training. 

Overview

This Russian and Post-Soviet Politics MA programme offered at the University College London (UCL) offers students a structured, focused programme as well as flexibility to pursue individual interests. 

Study of Russian and post-Soviet politics is supplemented by a wide range of options on other regions of the former Soviet Union and broad thematic issues such as corruption and governance, ethno-political conflict, nationalism, sexual identity and security. Students are also encouraged to learn Russian, Ukrainian or Estonian.

Careers

SSEES Master's graduates with expertise in the politics and societies of Russia and the post-Soviet states have achieved success in both public and private sectors.
