About

The Bachelor in Slavic and Eurasian Studies programme at Duke University is designed to explore Slavic and Eurasian cultures - their interrelated histories and contemporary interactions - so that you are prepared upon graduation to engage knowledgeably and productively in professional careers or to pursue graduate study.

Overview

This Bachelor in Slavic and Eurasian Studies programme at Duke University also allows you to draw on the faculty strengths of the Slavic Department at UNC-Chapel Hill, as well as the Middle Eastern/Islamic Studies programs at both universities, including the Duke Islamic Studies Center.

Recommended

Students are encouraged to study abroad in a country that is related to the geographical area covered by the major. Our department is directly involved in several semester and summer programs, providing you with a lot of flexibility in when and where to study. Courses taken abroad in a Duke-administered or Duke-approved program can fulfill the Foreign Language requirement for graduation.

Career advising

Students completing the Bachelor in Arts degree in Slavic and Eurasian Studies find employment in business, media, banking, the legal profession, publishing, work with non-governmental agencies, and government agencies. They may also work as cultural exchange coordinators, teachers, translators, and interpreters.  Many of our graduates also enter professional programs (public policy, business, environmental studies) or such graduate studies related to the field as cultural anthropology, history, linguistics, literature, political science, and sociology.
