About BA Russian

Our Single Honours Russian degree allows you to gain a high level of proficiency in the Russian language. You will also study contemporary Russian culture and key periods in Russian history from the Soviet Union to Orthodox culture, alongside texts and films that reflect each period. This course is suitable for both beginners and those who wish to build on existing experience.

In your third year you will immerse yourself in a Russian-speaking environment. Students have been to many parts of Russia, including Moscow and St. Petersburg, as well as lesser-known cities such as Tomsk in Siberia and Krasnodar in southern European Russia. There is a wonderful range of placements available, either to study Russian at a university, teach English, or work, for example in a multinational company, charity or non-governmental organisation.

Over the course of the degree you will perfect your Russian language skills while exploring diverse aspects of Russian literature, history and culture. Bristol's Russian department offers an enviable range of cultural options and offers a dynamic and supportive environment for your studies.
