Educational programs

What are Majors and Minors?


A major, just like specialization in an ordinary university department, defines what the students are taught and which their profession will be after they graduate.


But there are some key differences in Liberal Arts:

Philology and Translation

The School of the Advanced Studies in the Humanities (SASH) has opened a new program ôPhilology and Translationö, which is in accordance with State educational standard for Arts and Humanities, in 2016. As Russia (and, specifically, Moscow) can boast with a great many of departments of philology, the question is what makes this program different of the rest.

Key courses

According to the curriculum, a number of courses is planned that are directed at development of practical skills in philology: editing, commenting, researching archives, etc. For instance, a yearly cross-cutting course ôPhilological practicesö, which is unmatched within other universities, dwells upon the latter.

  • History of world literature
  • Latin
