CERES has many opportunities for students to incorporate European, Russian, and Eurasian studies into their education including minors, language study, study abroad, and more.
The Center for European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies offers two undergraduate minors: European Studies and Russian and Eurasian Studies. Additionally, we offer a minor in Muslim Studies through our partnership with the MSU Muslim Studies Program.
In addition to annually offered Eurasian languages such as French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish, MSU also offers less traditional language programs.
The Paper Contest award is given in memory of William McCagg, a historian and educator who specialized in Central and Eastern Europe. Dr. McCagg was Director of the Russian and East European Studiesprogram at Michigan State University where he taught for 30 years.
MSU has over 700 registered student organizations, including these related to European, Russian, and Eurasian studies.
MSU offers multiple study abroad and exchange programs in Eurasia. The university currently offers programs in Russia, Azerbaijan, and Kazakhstan, as well as three programs in Turkey.
