What will I learn?

A Masters by Research (MScR) programme is ideal if you have a clear idea of the independent research you wish to undertake at masters level. Join our community and undertake two research assignments, and a 15,000 word dissertation, under the guidance of an experienced and well-published supervisor.

Our research expertise covers a wide range of areas, including social, political and cultural perspectives on Russian language, transnational Russian culture, Russian literature, media, film studies, theatre studies and comparative literature.

We collaborate with many national and international partners such as the Cross-Language Dynamics: Reshaping Communities Consortium and the Centre for Russian, Central and East European Studies (CRCEES) Consortium.

In addition, students joint a wide range of activities from a regular seminar series in European Languages and Cultures (with talks by staff, research students and visiting speakers), to film screenings, workshops, and readings by Russian writers.
