About Us

European University at Saint Petersburg (EUSP) is considered the top research school in humanities and social sciences in Russia. The university has five academic departments and twelve research centers which focus on practical inter-disciplinary research. EUSP is also the most international university in Russia with about 25% of international students. Students from all over the world come to EUSP to join one of the three international Master's degree programs:

IMARES (Russian and Eurasian Studies),

ENERPO (Energy Politics in Eurasia), and

MARCA (Russian Cultural History and the Arts, now part of the IMARES program).

EUSP, a graduate school with just 250 students, attracts students from all over Europe and North America. A 3:1 student-to-faculty ratio ensures that all of our international students have meaningful engagement with professors. Small classes allow mentoring students, giving personal attention and individual guidance to each of you.

EUSP alumni work in NGOs in many European countries and the USA.
