REEI M.A. degree

The REEI master’s degree program is intended to prepare area specialists for nonacademic careers in government and private-sector fields such as research and foreign aid, or in exchange organizations, journalism, and business.

REEI also offers a Mid-Career Professional Track M.A. degree in Russian and East European area studies, which aims to add to and refine the area expertise professional and commissioned officers have acquired through their career.
