The end of the Cold War has made Russia an open society with a new political order. There is now a unique opportunity to study a country that was long shrouded in mystery.

The Russian and Eurasian Studies program brings together experienced Mason faculty who will guide your exploration of this region's culture, gender, class, ethnicity, economy, government, and politics.

All majors have the opportunity to study abroad in Moscow or St. Petersburg. They acquire the language skills needed to function successfully in social settings and a variety of careers.
