Russian, East European, and Central Asian Studies

The end of the Cold War, along with the collapse of the Soviet Union and communist regimes in Eastern Europe, offers a unique opportunity to take a fresh look at an old field: Russian and East European area studies. Formerly caught within the framework of the Cold War, new societies are emerging, struggling to come to grips with their pasts and forging their own unique futures.

The Russian, East European, and Central Asian studies minor, an interdisciplinary program developed jointly by the College of Arts and Sciences and the Charles F. Dolan School of Business, offers students an opportunity, from a base major either in international studies or one of the disciplines, to develop a focus on this dynamic area of the world.
