The Center for Slavic and East European Studies (CSEES) offers several curricular options at the graduate level for students seeking to deepen their knowledge and understanding of the East European and Eurasian region. These programs allow students to pursue an interdisciplinary course of study by taking courses from academic departments across campus, to develop a regional or country specialization, and to enhance their language skills.
The MA in Slavic and East European Studies is a terminal degree offered by CSEES that accepts applications on a yearly basis from prospective students.
The Mid-Career Professional MA Track in Slavic and East European Studies is a terminal degree offered by CSEES that requires fewer credit hours than the traditional MA in Slavic and East European Studies. It accepts applications on a rolling basis from prospective students who can demonstrate that they already have advanced language skills and extensive experience in the region.
The Graduate Interdisciplinary Specialization in East European and Eurasian Studies is a curricular option for current graduate students at Ohio State who wish to certify their knowledge of Eastern Europe and Eurasia in addition to their primary degree.
Students in the MA in Slavic and East European Studies are also able to pursue dual degrees with other graduate and professional programs at Ohio State, while CSEES also allows students in other graduate and professional programs to pursue a concurrent degree in Slavic and East European studies. Of particular note, CSEES has a three-year dual degree program in Slavic and East European studies and public affairs in partnership with the John Glenn College of Public Affairs.
Prospective students for any of these curricular options should take a look at course listing information to see the breadth of courses available at Ohio. We also have compiled information relevant to students new to Columbus and/or from the military.
