MARussian Language and Literature

More information 


Program description:
The MA programme consists of a basic common part compulsory for everybody (68 credits) and an optional specialisation (22 credits). The basic part covers studies in descriptive and historical linguistics as well as in literary criticism, and it also contains language practice seminars. The MA programme gives an opportunity to choose from four different specialisations such as 1) Russian linguistics, 2) the history of Russian literature and literary criticism, 3) Russian literature–world literature comparative studies, 4) intercultural communication. Strengths of the programme: The structure of the MA programme is flexible, and the choice among the four kinds of specialisations fulfils the needs of students with various interests. From each specialisation students can go on to PhD programmes offered by the department (in Russian linguistics or Russian literature). The strength of the MA programme is indicated by the scientific achievements of the department staff (four professors have a DSc degree) and the professional career of the students who have already completed the MA programme. It is quite plausible that the labour market demands students from all these specialisations. Career opportunities: Apart from the education sector, the career opportunities of students with an MA degree in Russian language and literature embrace the economic, cultural, political, and social spheres as well.

Entry requirements:
A C1-level, internationally recognized language certificate in the target language or a diploma in the target language. A bachelor degree in a connected study field is also required.
