Subjects

Russian and east european studies

History of art

Studying a combination of history of art and Russian offers an enriching experience with exciting intellectual challenges. It provides a valuable skill set that is ideally tailored to an increasingly globalised workplace.

Alongside history of art, your Russian studies will introduce you to a linguistic and cultural tradition encompassing some of Europe's most important writers, literary and cinematic developments, and ideological trends.

You will study a combination of language, art history and culture units, spending your third year abroad in a Russian-speaking country on a study or work placement. While abroad, you will refine your skills in your chosen language along with your cultural understanding.

Both departments encourage strong synergy between research and teaching, resulting in a vibrant learning environment for our students as staff respond in their teaching to new developments. All modern languages students have access to our state-of-the-art multimedia centre.

Most graduates studying a Russian and East European course studied Russian, and with Russia playing an important part in world business and politics, graduates are in demand. This is an elite group — 200 UK graduates got degrees in this subject in 2015, and they usually have amongst the best average starting salaries of all language graduates. London was by far the most likely place for Russian graduates to work in the UK and naturally, a reasonable proportion - about a fifth - went overseas to work. Postgraduate study (usually in law or languages) is also quite common — this is a growing area for the UK.

This is a category for graduates taking a wide range of courses that don’t fall neatly into a subject group, so be aware that the stats you see here may not be a very accurate guide to the outcomes for the specific course you’re interested in. Management, finance, marketing, education and jobs in the arts are some of the typical jobs for these graduates, but it's sensible to go on open days and talk to tutors about what you might expect from the course, and what previous graduates did.
