Program Description

Master of Arts in European and Eurasian Studies

The George Washington University - Elliott School Of International Affairs

In the vast geopolitical realm that stretches from the British Isles to Siberia and from the Nordic regions to the Mediterranean, powerful forces are pushing for political, social, and economic change. EU member states and their neighbors confront a host of domestic challenges ranging from economic reform and social diversity to terrorism and separatism. Russia and other members of the Commonwealth of Independent States stand at different points along the path of transition from communism to new political institutions. A web of political, economic, security, and societal connections increasingly links various parts of Europe and Eurasia with one another, as well as with the wider global community. In view of these dynamic interactions, it is essential to study Europe and Eurasia in conjunction with each other. The Elliott School’s Master of Arts in European and Eurasian Studies (EES) provides students with an interdisciplinary approach that is vital for a deep understanding of these important regions. The EES curriculum combines required courses with a variety of electives that allow students to pursue individual professional goals and intellectual interests. This multifaceted program encompasses academic approaches to European and Eurasian affairs and develops practical analytical skills that are essential in the professional world of international affairs.
