Master in Russia-East Central Europe

University of Geneva
Campus Full time 4 semesters February 2018 Switzerland Geneva

The Master Russia-East Central Europe offers specialised education on Russia and the countries comprising East Central Europe.

Master en Russie-Europe médiane Le Master en Russie-Europe médiane offre un parcours de spécialisation sur la Russie et les pays de l’Europe médiane. Sur le plan historique, il s’agit des pays nés de la désintégration de l’URSS dans sa partie européenne (Caucase compris), ainsi que des pays qui ont connu un destin commun suite à l’instauration sur leur sol de régimes communistes. Après l’éclatement du bloc soviétique et la chute de ces régimes, ces pays ont acquis le statut d’États indépendants. Toutefois, ils restent pour la plupart liés par leur proximité soit géographique, soit culturelle, soit linguistique, ainsi que par les conséquences de leur ancienne appartenance à l’espace communiste. Ce Master n’est pas disciplinaire: si l’histoire et les études culturelles en sont les dominantes, d’autres disciplines, par exemple les sciences économiques et la science politique, sont également mobilisées à des titres divers dans le programme des enseignements. De même, ce Master étudie la Russie et l’Europe médiane dans leurs interactions et connexions avec d’autres espaces régionaux. Pour clore leur cursus, les étudiants choisissent entre un stage ou un mémoire. Le stage s’inscrit dans une démarche professionnalisante avec un rapport de stage sur l’expérience acquise tandis que le mémoire prépare aux métiers de la recherche. Programme d'études Enseignements obligatoires du tronc commun (30Crédits) : Histoire de l’URSS dans les relations internationales Histoire de l’Europe centrale et orientale (1929- 1989) Histoire de l’Ukraine (xixe-xxie siècles) The Economics of Central and Eastern Europe Enseignement de spécialisation (30Crédits) : Approfondissement dans 1 ou plusieurs...
