Course summary

After a period of political, social and economic transformation, Russia is playing an increasingly important role in global politics and, as the world’s largest country, has its fifth most widely spoken language. This programme enables you to study Russian in the context of Russian culture, past and present, alongside issues such as the morality of political action, the limits of freedom and justice, and the processes of governance at various levels within politics. 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, and a year spent studying in Russia, will teach you how to read, write and speak the language to a high standard, including in translation. You will also learn about Russian literature, art, music and film. The Politics side of the programme focuses on a variety of issues in politics, political theory, public theory and international relations in Europe, Russia, Africa and the US. It aims to equip you with substantive knowledge of a range of political systems, institutions, processes and ideas, enabling you to develop and apply your knowledge and skills to the understanding and evaluation of political issues and problems in the contemporary world. In Years 1 and 2, you will choose option courses drawn from a broad list of disciplines in addition to your core subjects. In your honours years (Years 3 and 4), you will study research-led courses selected on the basis of your own interests in both Russian Studies and Politics.
