European University at St Petersburg

The European University at St. Petersburg (Russian: Европейский университет в Санкт-Петербурге), sometimes referred to as EUSP, is a non-state graduate university located in St. Petersburg, Russia. It was founded in 1994. Today the University is widely recognised as one of the leading academic institutions in humanities and social sciences in Russia.

The main language of instruction at the University is Russian. However, the Department of Political Science and Sociology (ranked top 3 in Eastern Europe and the best in Russia in 2002) in 1998 launched a unique programme in Russian and Eurasian studies IMARES for graduates of Western universities, which is delivered in English. It attracts students from all over Europe and North America. Recently a similar program though more concentrated on Russian culture, art and history and therefore named MA in Russian Culture or MARCA Petropolitana has been successfully started. The third MA program with English training, Energy Politics in Eurasia or ENERPO, is due to start in autumn 2012. In addition the University offers a number of smaller international programmes with instruction in English, ranging from a “semester abroad” curriculum, summer schools to Russian language courses.
