Fields of Study

The Master’s program in Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies is designed to combine area studies across disciplines with a concentration within a discipline. Courses on Russia, Eastern Europe, and former Soviet Eurasia may be found in many departments at UO, including Religious Studies, Art History, Political Science, Comparative Literature, Anthropology, History, Geography, Sociology, Music, and Linguistics, as well as in REEES. In principle, if a student is able to obtain four graduate courses on Russia, Eastern Europe, and Eurasia in one of those fields, and has a specialist as an adviser, that field may serve as the student’s field of concentration, pending approval by the REEES director. In practice, that criterion is easy to fulfill in four fields, one of which is in fact interdisciplinary:

Russian Literature

Slavic Linguistics

Russian History

Contemporary Russia, Eastern Europe, and Eurasia
