Russian and Slavonic Studies

The MPhil and PhD both involve the writing of a thesis under the supervision; although the department supervises research projects based in the core areas of Russian and Slavonic studies; many graduate students are not speakers of Slavonic languages and pursue multi-disciplinary projects; this is especially true in the case of students attached to the Bakhtin Centre.
