Master’s Programme 'Russian and Comparative Literature'

Master’s Programme 'Russian and Comparative Literature'

Students receive fundamental training in the field of Russian literature and contemporary comparative literature. Russian literature is examined in the context of the general development of world literature, as well as in terms of its interaction with other national traditions. The comparative perspective uses the interaction between Russian literature and other artistic and cultural fields as a space for public discussion and as part of the contemporary cultural environment.

International Students Can Now Apply to HSE through a Simplified Procedure

HSE’s Admission Rules for the 2017/2018 academic year have undergone some changes in regards to international admission. The admission track is now unified for students from both CIS and non-CIS countries. Thus, only two exams must be passed in order to be accepted into a given undergraduate programme, while competitions for Master’s programmes only require a portfolio and an interview. The rules for International Olympiad Competitions have also been changed. Registration for these competitions ends on October 18 (for some countries, deadlines may be extended).
