Masters degrees in Russian & East European Languages equip postgraduates with the skills to critically analyse and understand the development, morphology and usage of languages originating from, or associated with, Russia and Eastern Europe.
Related postgraduate specialisms include Russian, East European & Eurasian Studies. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Language and Literature or Cultural Studies.
Russia and Eastern Europe encompass large geographical areas, home to numerous linguistics traditions. Courses in this field therefore offer wide-ranging specialist topics for you to choose from.
For example, you might wish to examine classical Russian philology, and the ways in which the Slavic languages have developed over time from their emergence in the Middle Ages.
Alternatively, you might focus your studies on contemporary Russian linguistics, learning to translate Russian into other languages, or training to teach Russian as a foreign language.
Careers in this field may include roles in the public and private sectors, such as academia and publishing, journalism, heritage management, and policy-making or translation for immigration or foreign policy departments.
