Russian and Eurasian Studies (RES) is an interdisciplinary program affiliated with the Departments of History, Political Science, Comparative Literature, Art and German/Russian/East Asian languages. The focus of this program is the region that stretches from Central and Eastern Europe through the breadth of Russia and Central Asia into northeastern Eurasia. We study the histories, languages, politics, economies, and cultures of a significant part of the world long obscured by the intellectual and methodological tensions of the Cold War. The program provides a background for careers in law, teaching, public and foreign service, international business, and the domestic and international non-profit sector.  It also prepares students for graduate training in area studies and language instruction. RES sponsors a variety of activities such as a speaker series, films, and other cultural events associated with the Russian language house. For more complete descriptions of the courses noted below, please refer to the catalog entries for the appropriate departments.
