Bachelor’s Programme 'Philology'

The BA programme in Philology offers a general humanistic education with an emphasis on comparative literature and linguistics. The programme is unique in combining essential philological training with the spirit of a liberal arts college. In particular, it brings together the traditional virtues of Russian university education, such as a carefully planned four-year curriculum, and the modern vision of humanistic knowledge, grounded in dialogue and admitting of diverse approaches and perspectives.
