The M.Sc. in Russian and East European Studies is a relatively new course, which began in October 2002.
The structure of the M.Sc. course, which is completed over nine months, is similar to that of the MPhil course in that it includes the three core courses. It does not require the study of relevant language but supports those who wish to develop their language skills.
The aim of the M. Sc. in REES is to provide students with an understanding of major topics and perspectives within Russia and East European Studies based on a critical knowledge of the scholarly literature relevant to the course. Students will also receive training in research skills and methodology to enable them to complete a 15,000 word thesis.
