HSE University – St. Petersburg to Launch New Academic Programmes in 2020
Next year HSE University – St. Petersburg will launch 10 new academic programmes. The university will offer new areas of study as well as update already existing programmes.
Just in time for 2020-2021 admissions, 10 new bachelor’s and master’s degree programmes are set to open at HSE University – St. Petersburg. Three of these programmes are in fields of study that have previously not been offered. Beginning next year, HSE University – St. Petersburg students will be able to embark upon undergraduate and master's studies in physics. Notably, this is not an entirely new field for HSE University: HSE University in Moscow started admitting students to programmes in physics in 2017.
HSE University – St Petersburg is also proud to introduce for the first time a new master’s programme in philology, 'Russian Literature in Cross-Cultural and Intermedium Contexts' (taught in Russian). This programme is for student interested in exploring Russian culture through literature.
Good news is also in store for students looking to enrol in English-taught programmes at HSE – St. Petersburg: the campus will be launching four new programmes, which will bring HSE University – St. Petersburg's total of English-taught programmes to 12. The new additions include the graduate programmes 'Global and Regional History', 'International Business', 'Arts and Culture Management', and 'Master in Comparative Russian and Eurasian Politics' (a joint programme with University College London).
These programmes are developed in collaboration with major researchers in their respective fields, leading employers, and international partners from all over the world.
In response to modern challenges such as copyright law in contemporary Russia, HSE — St. Petersburg will launch a new graduate programme, 'Intellectual Property Law in the Digital Age' (taught in Russian), as well as a master’s degree programme 'Machine Learning and Data Analysis', which will cover one of the fastest-growing and in-demand fields.
International student admissions for the 2020-2021 academic year will start in November 2019.
