The Department of Russian & Slavic Studies at New York University announces a new funding opportunity for students in the Interdisciplinary Master’s Degree program, a fellowship that will provide significant support for highly qualified MA students. All admitted applicants will automatically be considered for this award. Details about the fellowship and donor will be announced shortly. For now, we hope that you will inform students of this new avenue of financial support for those interested in studying Russia.
NYU’s interdisciplinary MA program provides access to Russia-related courses in departments across the university. In addition to the departmental curriculum’s particular strengths in literature, history, and film, the course of study can encompass a wide range of fields, from music and anthropology to linguistics and performance studies. With its focus on interdisciplinarity and comparative methodologies, the program can serve as excellent preparation for graduate study at the PhD level. It also provides a thorough grounding in the Russia field for terminal MA students who choose to pursue a career in this area.
