Are you considering a Masters degree in a field related to Russian, East European, & Eurasian Studies but wondering whether and when you should take this next step? Unsure what sorts of programs exist? Curious about finding and funding opportunities near your own current institution or alma mater? This webinar gives you a chance to hear from and pose your questions to both a career consultant and the representatives of various Northeast U.S. universities and colleges. Laura Schlosberg, a graduate of a Northeast liberal arts college who taught and advised students at a Northeast research university before becoming the Assistant Dean of Academic and Curricular Support in the School of Humanities and Sciences at Stanford University, will discuss and field questions about deciding whether an MA in a REEES field is the right next step for you (and, if you decide that it is, the factors you should consider in choosing a program). After a Q&A with Dr. Schlosberg, program administrators at institutions ranging from large universities to small colleges and representing both public and private education systems will give lightening-round introductions to their degrees and strengths, followed by a moderated discussion in which they will answer your questions about trends in the nature and value of masters-level work on the job market and in higher ed. Stay for an extra 15 minutes at the end to join some of our program representatives in separate meetings where you can introduce yourself and ask your program-specific questions.

Columbia University, CUNY Hunter College, Harvard University, Middlebury College, New York University, University of Pennsylvania, and Yale University
