Deadline for Applications: February 1, 2019
The Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies Program at the University of Oregon (REEES) invites applications for its two-year M.A. degree. REEES is the home of undergraduate and graduate programs in all fields connected to Russia, Eastern Europe, and former Soviet
Eurasia at the University of Oregon.
REEES is one of the oldest programs devoted to the study of Russia, Eastern Europe, and Eurasia in the United States. Established in 1968, it was a founding institutional member of the American Association for the Advancement of Slavic Studies. In its first three decades, REEES brought together scholars with a shared interest in the region for occasional lectures, collaborative projects, and social events, and it allowed students in other departments to earn a certificate of mastery in the Russian and East European area. REEES today reflects this long history of interdisciplinary scholarly interaction, but the 1998 merger of REEES with the Russian Department has transformed a loose collegial grouping into a comprehensive degree-granting program at the bachelor’s and master’s levels. Our roster of 16 participating faculty members and numerous associated, emeritus, and courtesy faculty comprises innovative and committed teachers, with distinguished and in many cases internationally-recognized records of
The Master’s program in Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies is designed to combine area studies across disciplines with a concentration within a discipline. Courses on Russia, Eastern Europe, and former Soviet Eurasia may be found in many departments at UO, including Religious Studies, Art History, Political Science, Comparative Literature, Anthropology, History, Geography, Sociology, Music, and Linguistics, as well as in REEES. Students concentrate their studies in one of three areas: Russian literature, Russian history, or Contemporary Russia, Eastern Europe, and Eurasia.
