Graduate School of RSUH

The Department has enjoyed a long history of cooperation with the Graduate School of RSUH.  The Department provides the linguistic portion of the qualifying exams for the following tracks:

  • Economics
  • Philosophy
  • Law
  • Psychology
  • Sociology
  • Political Science
  • Technical Sciences

     The representative of the Department serving as a liaison to the Graduate School is Dr. Yakunina.  The working group headed by her has generated course syllabi, calendar plans, and course materials for the classes. The program specifying the proficiency level and the exact amount of material to be covered by the date of the qualifying exam has also been written with the participation of Dr. Yakunina.

     The experience of the past years has shown that the best results in language studies are reached by those with a high level of motivation in both learning the language and using it to broaden their scientific horizons through reading dissertation/thesis materials written in English.

     At the beginning of the course the graduate students are expected to find these materials themselves, assisted in the process by their supervisors.

   The graduate students’ translations of recent professional articles have often been published in professional magazines.

    The Department working group is constantly working on new textbooks and teaching materials for the courses.
