The School of Asian Studies is one of the leading centres in Russia in this field and in the study of East Asia and the Middle East. The school has developed a comprehensive approach: its primary aim is to provide students with the fundamentals of Asian Studies, and then to introduce them to specific areas, including historical, cultural, religious, socio-economic and political developments of the traditional and modern East. Students also examine Russia’s interaction with eastern countries.
The school runs an intensive programme focusing on classical, as well as modern, eastern languages. It combines the academic foundations of Asian Studies with the practical skills needed to work with East Asian and Middle Eastern countries.
