Russian MA and PhD programs at McGill University

Russian Studies at McGill invites applications from talented students.  As part of the Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures, we offer a uniquely multi-cultural and interdisciplinary environment. Our students and faculty are committed to open,  culturally informed dialogue among national and across intellectual traditions.

Our faculty specializes in 19th and 20th century Russian literature and culture, working in such areas as Russian Romanticism, the Russian novel, Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, Chekhov, Russian drama, opera, and film, Russian modernism, high Stalinist culture, post-Soviet culture, Russian visual culture, cultural mythology, symbolic geography, and intertextuality. Our Department hosts  a broad and flexible range of graduate seminars, including literary theory, film, the digital humanities, and environmental and animal studies. A small but dynamic program allows for a great deal of personal attention, an atmosphere of collegiality and a close-knit intellectual community.
McGill University is world famous for its academic standards and scholarly achievements. Located in Montreal, a cosmopolitan and vibrant city, it provides a fascinating intellectual and cultural setting for serious graduate studies. Our graduate students have collaborated with the Departments of Communication and Art History, Jewish Studies, the School of Music and the Women Studies program.

Financial support and teaching assistantships for qualified graduate students are available. Instruction and supervision are offered in second-language teaching.
The deadline for applications for Fall 2017 is January 15, 2017.
