The Master's Programme in Russian and European Studies (RES) offers an interdisciplinary learning environment for students interested in questions of Russian and European politics/international relations, society, culture and language. The programme builds on the idea of ‘wider Europe’ of which Russia is taken as an integral part. The programme emphasizes both conceptual and practical knowledge of Russian and European studies and the related methodologies, with an eye on professional work in the fields of Russian politics, society, culture and language. Depending on specialization, the modes of study can include study trips and exchange studies in Russian and various other European universities; practical training; intensive study weeks in Tampere and Russia together with students of partner universities (International Relations students, organized as part of the Finnish-Russian Cross-Border University CBU); in addition to lectures, seminars, symposia and workshops, as well as independent studies.
