This course combines history of art with study of Russian. This course combination offers an enriching experience with exciting intellectual challenges and provides a valuable skill set that is ideally tailored to an increasingly globalised workplace. You will study a combination of language, art history and culture units, spending your third year abroad studying or working in a Russian-speaking environment, which will enable you to refine your language skills and cultural knowledge. Both departments encourage strong synergy between research and teaching resulting in a vibrant learning environment for our students as staff respond in their teaching to new developments. Alongside history of art, your Russian studies will introduce you to a linguistic and cultural tradition spanning some of Europe's most important writers, literary developments and ideological trends.
