Course content

This MA programme is designed to respond to the growing strategic importance of Russia and the former Soviet Union and meet the emerging demand for area-focused academic training.

The UCL School of Slavonic and East European Studies (SSEES) is one of the largest UK centres for the study of Russia and the post-Soviet region.
