The Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies Program at the
University of Oregon (REEES) invites applications for its two-year
M.A. degree.  REEES is the home of undergraduate and graduate programs
in all fields connected to Russia, Eastern Europe, and former Soviet
Eurasia at the University of Oregon.

REEES is one of the oldest programs devoted to the study of Russia,
Eastern Europe, and Eurasia in the United States. Established in 1968,
it was a founding institutional member of the American Association for
the Advancement of Slavic Studies. In its first three decades, REEES
brought together scholars with a shared interest in the region for
occasional lectures, collaborative projects, and social events, and it
allowed students in other departments to earn a certificate of mastery
in the Russian and East European area. REEES today reflects this
long history of interdisciplinary scholarly interaction, but the 1998
merger of REEES with the Russian Department has transformed a loose
collegial grouping into a comprehensive degree-granting program at the
bachelor’s and master’s levels.  Our roster of 16 participating
faculty members and numerous associated, emeritus, and courtesy
faculty comprises innovative and committed teachers, with
distinguished and in many cases internationally-recognized records of
scholarly publication.

The Master’s program in Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies is
designed to combine area studies across disciplines with a
concentration within a discipline. Courses on Russia, Eastern Europe,
and former Soviet Eurasia may be found in many departments at UO,
including Religious Studies, Art History, Political Science,
Comparative Literature, Anthropology, History, Geography, Sociology,
Music, and Linguistics, as well as in REEES.  Students concentrate
their studies in one of four areas:  Russian literature, Russian
history, Slavic linguistics, or Contemporary Russia, Eastern Europe,
and Eurasia.

Application deadline is Feb. 1; for further information please go to
