The Center for Eurasian, Russian and East European Studies (CERES) directs one of the nation's preeminent Master's degree programs, focusing on the political, economic, social, cultural and historical complexity of the vast Eurasian, Russian and East European region. For over fifty years, the program has provided a solid grounding in the languages and cultures of the region and interdisciplinary depth in the social sciences. Students plan a directed curriculum that culminates in a capstone seminar and research project that they present to students and faculty before graduation. CERES students represent a wide variety of academic, personal and professional backgrounds.
