Concentration Profile: Russia and Eurasia Studies

The role that Russia, and Eurasian countries, play in world politics has changed drastically since SAIS was founded in 1943, and the Russia and Eurasian Studies concentration allows students to develop a better understanding of the issues affecting the region today.

Dr. Bruce Parrott, SAIS professor and Director of the Russia and Eurasia Studies program discusses the challenges facing the region today.

Students in the Russian and Eurasian Studies program have the option of studying at either SAIS Bologna or SAIS DC for their first year, and all students spend their second year in Washington, DC.  In addition to on-campus lectures and research opportunities, the Russian and Eurasian Studies program offers summer internship opportunities to students through cooperation with the Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO).
