The huge landmass that comprises Russia, Eastern Europe, Central Asia, and the Caucasus is approached from multiple directions in the Fletcher curriculum. Fletcher offers courses on the foreign policy, geopolitics, religion, and security of a region torn apart after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Students obtain knowledge about regional trends; social, political, and economic processes between and within post-Soviet nations; as well as their relations with the United States and European Union. Learn more about the self-designed Russia and Eurasia field of study and the Russia and Eurasia Program at Fletcher. Outside the classroom, the Fletcher Eurasia Club focuses on the area.
