This summer, SRAS will host a special collection of innovative programs in St. Petersburg, Russia.
These are set to run from the 19th of June to the 12th of July, 2020. Your stay in St. Petersburg can be extended with four-weeks of intensive Russian-language study following the course. Note that each Summer School track listed below is designed to be intensive and thus students will choose only one track.
Social media, state media, fake news, and bias are all part of the new global media environment. This course will seek to show students how to create quality media and to critically analyze journalism as media consumers.
What will be the future of energy in a decarbonized world? Countering climate change will entail serious changes to the global economy, with considerable diplomatic cooperation needed between countries producing hydrocarbons and those consuming them. This interdisciplinary course is aimed at students of economics, business, world economy, political science, international relations, energy studies/security, and sustainability studies.
How can cultural and historical heritage be best preserved and transmitted? To answer this question, we will take a behind-the-scenes look at the Hermitage Museum, and explore a plethora of others including educational museums at schools of higher learning, scientific museums, museums of ethnography, memorial apartment museums, literary museums, political history museums, and more.
NOTE: Program starts June 6th in Cuba before transfering to St. Petersburg! The Cuba-Russia Connection invites you to an intensive introduction to the history, culture, politics, and economies of two fascinating countries that have played important strategic and often interrelated roles in US foreign policy. We will study these countries from the perspective of cultural diplomacy, learning how each uses its cultural assets for diplomacy and economic gain.
Russian language study can also be taken on its own. Choose from several convenient time slots over the summer!
Russian as a Second Language is at the core of this program. An extensive cultural program is also included. You'll gain a wider, fuller, first-hand perspective on Russia for your future career in government, business, or academia.
