Russian and Economics

The Department of Russian and Slavonic Studies is a close-knit community. We teach in small groups so everyone gets the support they need. We’ll help you develop your written and spoken Russian to a good standard – you can start with a beginners course if you don’t have the A Level. Other modules cover the cultural and social history of Russia. Optional subjects include art, literature, East European cinema. The Department of Economics, where you will spend roughly half your time, is one of the few stand-alone economics departments in the north of England. Staff are leading researchers who advise UK government and international organisations. This breadth of expertise means they can cover a lot of topics, as well as teaching you the analytical skills every economist needs. You’ll spend your third year at a university in Russia. A second language, and experience of living and studying in another culture, gives you an edge in the jobs market, particularly if you want an international career. Our graduates are skilled communicators. They go into translating and interpreting, the intelligence services, journalism, publishing and international business.
