Russian and Eurasian Studies
The South Carolina Russian and Eurasian Studies Program sponsors lectures and offers an undergraduate minor that highlights research and study of Russia and neighboring countries.
The Russian and Eurasian Studies at USC is an interdisciplinary program bringing together faculty, students, and members of the community who have an interest in the region extending from Central Europe, through Russia and the Caucasus, to Central and Northern Asia. In conjunction with The Walker Institute of International and Area Studies, the program sponsors a series of lectures by visiting speakers, research presentations by USC faculty and graduate students, and an undergraduate minor.
Faculty affiliates come from more than a dozen USC departments and schools across the university. Their fields span Russian politics, history, geography, literature, and culture. The RES Program's Caucasus and Caspian Basin Initiative takes advantage of local expertise on Georgia, Armenia, and the Caspian Basin (Iran, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, south Russia, and Azerbaijan) to offer lectures and roundtable discussions on the culture and politics of that region.
