MARS – start of the new Master’s Programme at the Aleksanteri Institute

This is the first week of the new Master’s Programme in Russian Studies, organised by the Aleksanteri Institute.

 The Master’s Programme in Russian Studies at the University of Helsinki promotes an understanding of Russia as a vital member of global and local communities and an important and powerful player today. There will be a continuing need in the future for expertise in Russian culture, politics, and society in a variety of fields in national and international arenas.

2018 is the first year this multidisciplinary Master’s Programme is being run and the start already looks very promising. From our team, Professor Veli-Pekka Tynkkynen and Academy of Finland Research Fellow Meri Kulmala will be teaching at the programme. For example, Professor Tynkkynen will give a lecture on “Russian Environmental Policy” at the course “Introduction to the Multidisciplinary Research of Russia” and will also teach at the course “Processes and Flows: Global Processes and Flows in Russia”.
