This one-year master’s degree explores Russia and the Eurasian world from the perspectives of language, literature and culture, or politics, history and economics. Leiden University's Faculty of Humanities has been studying Russia and the Slavic world since 1913. Scholars from around the world come to Leiden University to study and teach this fascinating field. During your studies, you will learn from our faculty members as well as visiting international scholars.

A flexible degree format means that you can focus your studies on the region's language, literature and culture, or on its politics, history, international relations and economics. You can also combine elements from the two specialisations, and study courses at other top universities abroad.

An international classroom makes this a particularly rich learning environment for our students. Competitive scholarship and internship programmes give motivated students the opportunity to study or work in Russia, Georgia, and other countries.
