Program description

The combination of Chinese and Russian studies is designed to develop your interest, and complex knowledge and understanding, of the two countries, including their language, history, literature, culture and social issues. A knowledge of Chinese language and culture is increasingly important as China becomes a bigger global player, economically and politically. China currently has the largest population in the world and the world's second largest economy. Russia is the world's largest country and has the fifth most used language in the world. After a period of political, social and economic transformation, Russia is playing an increasingly bigger role in international politics. Russian studies will give you a solid understanding of the Russian language and culture. You will study Russian literature, art, music and film and the country's political history. Graduate employers recognise the importance of both languages and the need for a broad cultural education alongside language skills. Graduates will be capable of acting as bridges of understanding and conduits of knowledge between Chinese, Russian, and British cultures.
