The Course

Summary

Russian - Russian at St Andrews uses a specially designed language teaching programme that caters both for students who have already studied Russian as a main subject at school and for absolute beginners. Upon completing the degree, you will have an excellent command of the Russian language and have gained an invaluable understanding and appreciation of the Russian-speaking world. During your degree, you have the opportunity to spend time studying abroad in Russia. Time in Russia is not compulsory, but is strongly recommended as the best way to master the language and to better know the country. On a four-year degree, students can spend one semester in one of a variety of locations in Russia. The MA (Hons) in Russian is also available as a five-year course with an integrated year abroad when students spend time studying in Russian between their second and third years.

Theological Studies - The MA (Hons) in Theological Studies provides an introduction to the rich theological traditions of Christianity, covering the history of Christian theology from the early church to the modern world. You will explore ways in which Christianity is being expressed and lived out today in different areas of the world, as well as learn about the distinctive challenges to faith presented by modern secular culture. The MA course is particularly suited for those wanting a wider range of options across Arts subjects, but who still want to give most of their attention to Divinity.
