There is no better time to get to know Eastern Europe than right now. The region from the Czech Republic to Russia, Estonia to Bulgaria, Poland to Romania, shares a long tradition of communist rule. But that changed 25 years ago, and the seismic shift is still felt across Europe today.

Join us to study on the world’s only online master program in East European Studies. You can stay on the job while gaining the knowledge, professional skills and network you need to become a leader in your field.
