The main focus of the program is a comprehensive study of Russia after 1991. It covers the failed transition to democracy and the current political regime; the economic transformation of Russia versus countries with socialist experience; patterns in Russian foreign policy; colonialism in relation to other countries and indigenous peoples; the state of Russian society; propaganda, and the role of independent media. Students will learn to become proficient in scientific research methodology. The program is flexible. We will add new disciplines each semester that reflect the goals of the program and the academic interests of our students.
