Our majors in the Central European, Russian and Eurasian Studies program from University of Maryland take courses in a range of different departments, gaining a firm grounding in the languages, literatures, history, politics, and economics of their area of study. They have the flexibility to do coursework in other fields related to the area as well. Students learn to examine our area of study with the tools of many scholarly fields.
Our goal is to advance knowledge about a wide array of different peoples, countries, and cultures in the former Soviet Union and Eastern/Central Europe. Students develop the skills to compare diverse areas by studying the entire region.
Our majors prepare for careers and graduate programs in which an in-depth knowledge of Russia, Central Europe, and Eurasia can be applied with great benefit, such as journalism, government service, diplomacy, business, a variety of professional schools, and M.A. and Ph.D. programs in the humanities and social sciences.
