The Department of Russian and Slavic Studies offers a diversified and balanced MA Program in Russian at University of Arizona that includes courses in literature, grammar, conversation, linguistics, and culture. Most literature courses are conducted in Russian. The emphasis is on the acquisition of practical skills as preparation for continued study, research, teaching, government service, and business careers. The program leads to a Master of Arts degree with a major in Russian.
The department offers two tracks in its degree program; one in Language, Literature, and Linguistics (LLL) and one in Russian and East European Studies (REES).
The prerequisite for the Language, Literature, and Linguistics track is a Bachelor’s Degree including at least 16 acceptable units of upper-division work in Russian.
The prerequisite for the REES track is a Bachelor’s Degree and a minimum of the equivalent of two years of study of the Russian language. If undergraduate language work beyond this minimum is deemed necessary, the graduate advisor and student may devise a program of study which will allow the student to attend graduate classes (taught in English) in such departments as History, Political Science, Geography, Comparative Cultural and Literary Studies, and possibly others, while working to advance his/her Russian language skills.

“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”
