Letters from our Alumni

IMARS is a graduate program for students who already hold a B.A. degree or its equivalent and wish to continue their study of Russia or other successor states of the Soviet Union. Those reading for an M.A. in Russian Studies at the EUSP are expected to achieve a solid interdisciplinary understanding of the region and to become first-class specialists in their field.

EUSP is a non-state university, founded in 1994 by the St. Petersburg city government, Russian Academy of Sciences, and the St. Petersburg Union of Scholars with support from the MacArthur, Ford, and Soros Foundations. The University has five Departments (Faculties): Political Sciences and Sociology, Ethnology, History, Economics and Finance, and History of the Arts (in cooperation with the State Hermitage Museum). IMARS is offered by the Faculty of Political Science and Sociology. Located in a beautiful downtown aristocratic mansion, the University offers an outstanding scholarly and cultural experience for those who wish to spend a year in Russia.
