THE NEWSLETTER >> JANUARY, 2018 - THE NEW STUDY ABROAD

The SRAS Newsletter
A Resource for Students, Educators, and Anyone Curious about Eurasia
Summer study abroad deadlines start March 15!
 

  CEA This summer, achieve your professional development goals abroad - in Georgia and Ukraine!

This New Year's edition of the SRAS Newsletter showcases our work in new program development over the past year.

Our newest program is Continuing Education Abroad. This program is geared to help educators achieve their professional development goals in innovative and exciting ways this summer.

For students, we have three new offerings. The first is a new study abroad program at MGIMO, Russia's premier institution for diplomacy and international relations. Take mainstream (degree) courses in English or Russian at the undergraduate or graduate level. The second is an update to our St Petersburg semester program, where you can take courses in English in the arts, the humanities, and/or business. Join us next semester in Russia's cultural capital and economic window on Europe. Lastly, our new Eurasian Seminar will be offered as an integrated part of all Moscow programs. Through excursions, seminars, culinary experiences, and contests, we will introduce students to the vast diversity of the religions, cultures, histories, and politics of Eurasia and Russia.

This is all in addition to the several new and revised summer courses we've announced in recent months. Study the role of foodways in economy, government policy, and ethnic identity in Georgia. Study cultural diplomacy in Cuba and St. Petersburg. Study environment in Irkutsk, anthropology in Bishkek, museum science in St. Petersburg, or security in Warsaw. You can also learn Russian or intern in nearly any of our many locations.

We've also included our regular monthly features – news overviews from GeoHistory and top songs and movies from PopKult, as well as resources from our other sites related to study abroad. We'll be back with a full back-to-school issue next month. If you have any questions or comments on our programs or resources, please contact us!
