About BA Politics and Russian

This course combines politics and international relations with the study of Russian. This provides a valuable skill set that is ideally tailored to the increasingly globalised workplace.

You will study the politics of individual countries and governments, and the relationships between countries, communities, and individuals.

Politics is organised around three themes:

  • political theory
  • comparative and national politics
  • international relations.

In Russian you will study a combination of language and culture units, introducing you to a linguistic and cultural tradition spanning some of Europe's most important writers, literary and cinematic developments and ideological trends.

You will spend your third year abroad, which will enable you to refine your language skills and cultural knowledge and gain valuable work experience. For further details on year abroad opportunities please see the Global Opportunities website.

Both schools encourage strong synergy between research and teaching, resulting in a vibrant learning environment as staff respond in their teaching to new research. This course combination offers an enriching experience with exciting intellectual challenges.
