Institute for European, Russian and Eurasian Studies
Note: GW offers a wide range of courses that can count toward the Europe-Eurasia (EE) requirement for either the European and Eurasian Studies (EES) MA Program or the Europe-Eurasia concentration in the International Affairs MA Program at the Elliott School. What follows is a list of such courses that we anticipate being taught during the current and future academic years (though please be aware that this can change).
Be aware that GW has additional courses that may count toward the EE requirement, but that are not taught regularly and hence are not listed here. Please check the schedule of classes each semester to see if there are other courses listed that might count; if you find one that is not on the following list but that you would like to take and that you think should count toward the EE requirement, please contact the program director for approval. (A good rule of thumb is that the course has at least 50% Europe-Eurasia content.)
