About

The MPhil Russian and East European Studies course from The University of Manchester will enable you to carry out a piece of original research under the supervision of our academics.

Overview

Staff in Russian and East European Studies conduct research of an interdisciplinary nature across a broad range of subjects, including:

  • 19th and 20th-century literature and intellectual history;
  • Soviet and post-Soviet cinema and the media;
  • gender studies;
  • memory studies;
  • nationalism and ethnic politics historically and in the post-communist period;
  • post-communist transition in East Central Europe.

The discipline of Russian and East European Studies constitutes a core group of the Cross-Disciplinary Russian and Eurasian Studies Network, which facilitates collaboration in research and postgraduate teaching and supervision among relevant members of staff across the Faculty of Humanities at Manchester.

Teaching and learning

The MPhil Russian and East European Studies course from The University of Manchester is suitable for students who wish to undertake original research over a shorter period than the PhD. It involves one year of full-time study or two years of part-time study.

Programme Structure

Coursework and assessment
  • Your research will normally be supervised by two members of staff at the University. Your supervisors will most likely be members of the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures, but if your research requires it, we may arrange for supervision by someone outside the School.
  • Supervisory arrangements at Manchester are governed by a Code of Practice which is available on the University's website.
  • Regular meetings will be held with the supervisors, and details of each of the meetings will be recorded.
  • Research panels (consisting of at least three academic staff, including the supervisors) are held once per semester to monitor progress.
