Course summary

About the course

The MPhil in Slavonic Studies is designed to help those who already possess a good knowledge of Russian or another Slavonic language to acquire grounding in areas of Slavonic studies which were not part of their first degree course. Students are able to select from a wide range of philological, literary and historical subjects as a preparation for advanced research in this field.

Supervision

The allocation of graduate supervision for this course is the responsibility of the Faculty of Medieval and Modern Languages and it is not always possible to accommodate the preferences of incoming graduate students to work with a particular member of staff. Under exceptional circumstances a supervisor may be found outside the Faculty of Medieval and Modern Languages.

Assessment
Year 1

You will take a translation paper in a Slavonic language and you will be examined in three other subjects taken from the schedules (one option is a submitted essay).

Year 2

You will be examined in two further subjects taken from the schedules and you will write a thesis of 20,000-25,000 words.

Graduate destinations

Many MPhil students proceed to doctoral degrees at Oxford or at other universities. Other graduate destinations include teaching, journalism, law, publishing and the civil service.
