“Our aim is to tailor each student's studies according to their goals. For example, if you want to pursue a career in research, we will strive to strengthen the skills and knowledge needed for this.” Sari Autio-Sarasmo is the Programme Director for the International Master's Programme in Russian Studies at the University of Helsinki. The programme promotes an understanding about Russia as an important and powerful player and a vital member of today’s world. You will explore the past and present of Russia, and develop Russia-related expertise that is needed in culture, politics and society both in national and international arenas.
