Russian Studies

Russian studies is an interdisciplinary field crossing history and language studies. It is closely related to Soviet and Communist studies and many times is included under Slavic studies.

Russian studies has become increasingly common in universities.

Mysticism and folklore is commonly studied, introduction of Christianity, rule under the tsars and expansion of Russian empire, later rule under communism, history of the Soviet Union and its collapse and studies about present-day Russia.
