Deadline: February 15, 2021 (funding)

If you have students interested in an MA degree in Russian studies, do consider forwarding them the following information about NYU’s Interdisciplinary MA, stand-alone, in a joint program with Journalism or with a concentration in International Relations.

Thanks to the Stephen Cohen fellowship, we can cover full tuition and offering living stipend to our best candidates. To be considered for this and other NYU scholarships, applications must be submitted by Feb. 15, 2021. Otherwise, admission is on a rolling basis.

The department offers an interdisciplinary M.A. in Russian and Slavic studies, a program that allows students to take Russia-related courses in departments across NYU. In addition to the departmental curriculum’s particular strengths in literature and film, the course of study can encompass a wide variety of specializations, from history and anthropology to politics, music, linguistics, and performance studies. With its focus on interdisciplinarity and comparative methodologies, the program can serve as excellent preparation for graduate study at the Ph.D. level. It also provides a thorough grounding in the Russia field for terminal M.A. students who choose to pursue a career in this area. Finally, our students take advantage of the events and other intellectual opportunities offered by NYU’s Jordan Center for Russian Studies:
