Russian - MScR


Course Description

Research profile

Russian can offer you a friendly, stimulating and supportive community of postgraduate students.

Our research has been internationally acknowledged for its quality. Research staff in Russian are actively involved in many UK and international research partnerships and projects, including the ARHC-sponsored project on the Russian 20th-century poetry canon in the post-Soviet period.

Supervision is offered in the broad field of Russian Studies including research areas related to the study of social, political and cultural perspectives on Russian language; the study of Russian literature; media; culture; film studies; theatre studies and comparative literature.

Your research can be linked with various taught MSc programmes (Comparative Literature, Theatre and Performance Studies, and Film Studies), allowing you to extend your research range. Research can also benefit from links with the Translation Studies research group.

Training and support

The flagship of our research is the unique Princess Dashkova Russian Centre, an internationally recognised hub with a focus on the Russian language in its social and cultural contexts. The Centre hosts an array of research activity including conferences, workshops, lectures and postgraduate seminars.

Facilities

The University has an excellent library and computing facilities in both English and Russian. Postgraduate students can also use the National Library of Scotland.

You will also have access to Russian TV channels, a rich collection of Russian books, journals and electronic resources, and of course the Princess Dashkova Russian Centre.
