The Department of Slavic Studies teaches Russian language and literature on all three levels of higher education, from BA to PhD. The department has a long and glorious research tradition, an excellent team of lecturers, who are disciples and followers of the world-famous researchers' Juri Lotman and Zara Mints. Our main research areas are the history and poetics of Russian literature, Russian-Estonian literary and cultural ties, linguistics, and interlingual communication. The department teaches Russian literature and linguistics courses, conducts practical classes in academic Russian language and editing, and is open to all those interested in Russian language and culture. Additionally, learning another Slavic language, Czech or Polish, and about the culture of the respective country is also compulsory for all BA students. The Department of Slavic Studies organizes annual international conferences and seminars and publishes a series of research papers titled "Acta Slavica Estonica". Students give presentations at an annual conference for young philologists, which results in the publication of an electronic collection "Russian Philology".
