Graduate Program: Graduate Studies in Russian (NYU)

Deadline for funding application: February 15, 2018

If you are interested in Russia-related study at the Master’s level, there are open possibilities for graduate work at NYU.

At the Master’s level, NYU offers three options: an interdisciplinary MA in Russian Studies, a Russian Studies MA with a concentration in International Relations, and a joint MA in Russian Studies and Journalism.  All programs give students access to Russia-related courses in departments across the university.

NYU can offer funding (up to full tuition) to the best MA candidates, thanks to the Stephen Cohen fellowship. To be considered for this and other NYU scholarships, applications for fall 2018 must be submitted by Feb. 15, 2018.

In addition to the NYU Russian department’s particular strengths in literature, film, and history, the course of study can encompass a wide variety of specializations, from history and anthropology to politics, music, linguistics, and performance studies. The program can serve as excellent preparation for graduate study at the PhD level as well as providing a thorough grounding in the Russia field for terminal MA students who choose to pursue careers in this area.

Finally,  students benefit from the many events and other intellectual opportunities offered by NYU’s Jordan Center for Russian Studies:
