For complete and up-to-date information about this course, please visit the relevant University of Oxford course page via The MPhil in Russian and East European Studies is a two-year programme for graduates who are interested in gaining a deeper knowledge and understanding of Russia and Eastern Europe through the study of the region across a range of disciplines including history, economics, politics, international relations and sociology. In the first year of the programme you will study the following three core courses, along with Research Methods for Area Studies and Russian Language: The specific provision of subject teaching in Contemporary Russian and East European Studies Parts 1 and 2 is dependent on teaching availability. Courses are taught through a combination of lectures and classes. You will be required to submit essays and make class presentations. Through the research methods course, you will receive training in relevant qualitative and quantitative methodologies to enable you to carry out research and writing for your 30,000-word thesis, while the Russian language course will deepen your connection with the region. In the second year you will be able to specialise your knowledge through the choice of two special subject courses chosen from a list of options available for that academic year. Russian language tuition will continue and you will work on completing your thesis which must be submitted by Monday in Week 4 of Trinity term. Russian language tuition Russian classes will focus on the development of language and communication skills relevant to research and study in the REES field. You will be required to pass the relevant Russian language qualifying exam as part of the MPhil programme. REES Lectures and Seminar Series REES students will have a weekly lecture, throughout the first two terms, delivered by a member of the department. Topics will include Twentieth Century Russian History, Central East European Politics, and Economics of the region. Students will also be required to participate in the departmental weekly seminar series, where they will get the opportunity to debate and discuss important topics concerning the region. Advanced research seminars REES and the Russian and Eurasian Studies Centre (RESC) run an Advanced Research Seminar Series each term at St. Antonyâ??s College. This is an essential component of the REES MPhil course and takes place each Monday during term time. Presentations are made by leading REES researchers from Oxford and other universities. Students are expected to attend and participate in discussions with these experts during the seminar and afterwards in more informal settings. Assessment In order to receive the MPhil degree, you must obtain pass marks in four three-hour written examinations and one extended essay (three core courses plus two optional courses) and for the thesis. In addition you must also pass the Russian language qualifying exam and satisfy on a pass/fail basis each section of the Research Methods requirement (qualitative and quantitative). Whilst you must pass the Russian language and Research Methods components of the degree programme, any marks obtained are not part of the determination of your overall results but are only recorded as pass/fail grades on your transcript. The skills you learn will be used in the development of your thesis work.
