Graduate Students

CREES is proud to offer several graduate degree options in Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies including the M.A.; the certificate of graduate studies; and dual degrees with business, law, and public policy. CREES also invites graduate and professional students in other University of Michigan departments to apply to become CREES Graduate Student Associates.

REES graduate degrees are interdisciplinary and allow flexibility to students choosing to focus their studies on humanities, social sciences, and professional coursework related to Russia, Eastern Europe, and/or Eurasia. REES degrees are intended to train future academic and professional experts on the region; a key component of this is competency in at least one regional language. Over 70% of CREES graduates have found employment in a related field or pursued further graduate studies. For more information, visit our Alumni pages.
