Faculty of Foreign Languages

General information

We offer full-time 4-year Bachelor’s Degree program and 2-year Master’s Degree program in Linguistics to international students interested in the Russian language and Russian Studies. These degrees provide a background for those students who wish to work toward a doctoral degree, which can be completed in three academic years.

We also offer short-term (one to nine months) internship programs.

Our baccalaureate programs have proved to be the most popular among our international students majoring in Russian and usually choosing English as their minor language. The curriculum gives the students a well-rounded background, with area studies in addition to the major and minor language courses. At the same time, students are immersed in the Russian language and culture. Their learning activities include field trips, site visits and walking tours around Moscow and in the Moscow Region. We foster cross-cultural experiences on campus for our domestic and international students.

Our short-term Russian-as-a-foreign-language programs include (but are not limited to) an intensive language course, from 8 to 20 hours in class a week. International students on all the programs are to pay tuition fees.
