Course summary

Around 150 million people in the world speak Russian, which plays an important role in global cultural and political contexts. It is the official language of four countries, is widely understood throughout Eastern Europe, and in the last thirty years has seen transnational mobility on an unprecedented scale.Studying Russian and History helps you understand the contemporary world, as well as shedding light on the past. **Russian** On this joint honours programme, you will learn the Russian language alongside Russian literature and culture, as well as developing an awareness of Russia's political and historical contexts. Our Year 1 Russian courses are streamed according to how much of the language you already know, so it does not matter if you are a complete beginner. Intensive language tuition, including a year spent studying in Russia, will teach you how to read, write and speak the language to a high standard, including in translation. **History** In History, you will study the human past more broadly, interacting with evidence in primary form, and through critical reading of a wide body of historical writing. The Edinburgh experience is distinctive for its range of historical themes, chronological periods and geographical areas. You can choose from courses covering:- early Middle Ages to the most recent past- Britain and Europe, Asia, Africa, and the AmericasFurther, our courses offer a rich variety of approaches to the past, including:- political history - cultural history - social history - economic history - intellectual history - gender history- global and transnational history
