Emory's Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies Program (REEES) is comprised of faculty from a number of departments whose common goal is to stimulate and enhance education and research about the former Soviet Union, eastern Europe, and Eurasia. Spanning the continents of Europe and Asia, this region of the world defines the pivotal crossroads between the West and the East. A complex and richly textured array of cultures and peoples, the area of Russia, East Europe, and Eurasia has been the site of numerous political, economic, and geographic changes, particularly since the collapse of the Soviet Union.
The Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies program at Emory seeks to broaden knowledge about the former USSR and eastern Europe through mulit- and inter-disciplinary programming for the Emory academic community, teachers and faculty at other educational institutions, and the general public. The department of REALC offers a major and a minor in REEES, which includes courses in politics, law, film, language, and other related disciplines. Students are also encouraged to take advantage of Emory's study abroad opportunities.
