Graduate Study Abroad Program

Rossiiskii Gosudarstvennyi Gumanitarnyi Universitet (RGGU)
Russian State University for the Humanities, Moscow

Beginning in the fall of 2009, second-year graduate students in the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures who have successfully completed their first year of study will be eligible to enroll for one semester in RGGU as part of the Ph. D. program in Russian literature and culture. Graduate students who successfully complete an approved, full semester’s load of course work at RGGU will receive up to 4 graduate course term credits toward the departmental Ph. D. The cost of study in Moscow, as well as room, board, and airfare, will be covered by each graduate student’s university stipend.

Requests from graduate students who are writing their dissertations and have University Dissertation Fellowships will also be considered.

This special program offers graduate students the opportunity to take courses in areas not covered in the department and to experience contemporary cultural life in Russia.
