I would like to pass on information about the two-year Master of Arts in
Interdisciplinary Research and Studies on Eastern Europe (MIREES) which might
be of interest for your students.
This programme is jointly offered by the University of Bologna, Italy together with
the Vytautas Magnus University at Kaunas, Corvinus University of
Budapest and St Petersburg State University. The University of Ljubljana is an
associate partner that offers additional mobility opportunities for
students. The Programme is taught entirely in English (120 ECTS). The MIREES
students will spend the first year in Forlì (one of the five campuses of
the University of Bologna), while in the second year a minimum of 6 months will be
spent at Partner Universities (including Ljubljana) and, in
particular cases, at other MIREES Associated Universities in the Balkans. A mobility
grant is offered to all enrolled students.
More detailed information on the teaching plan and the Faculty can be found at our
web site: http://www.mirees.unibo.it/ . The next deadline for
applications is May 21st, 2012.
The programme is especially recommended for prospective PhD students. Our best
alumni are currently attending doctorate programmes at the Universities
of Oxford, Kent, the New School in New York and other prestigious international
academic institutions. Moreover, the programme is designed to forge
analysts, area experts, consultants and mediators, to meet the needs of research
institutes, the European Commission, international agencies,
voluntary organizations and NGO's, public administration, managers, corporations and
banks located in East-Central Europe and the Balkans or promoting
investments in these regions. Most of our alumni have found employment precisely in
The MIREES programme offers specialized, in-depth knowledge of the post-socialist
countries in transition, the new EU member states, and the new
East-European neighbour countries to students with a BA in Economics, Politics,
International Relations, History, Languages (and Slavic languages in
particular), agricultural studies and cultural studies generally.
The programme aims at developing language skills. MIREES offers courses in
Bosnian-Croatian-Serbian, Bulgarian, Russian, Slovak, Lithuanian (Hungarian
is also available in the 2nd year), as well as Italian for foreigners as an
additional option. The curriculum is focused on Central, Eastern Europe
and the Balkans and includes interdisciplinary studies in economics; history, media
and international relations; politics and sociology. The
international dimension of the programme is enhanced through student mobility
abroad, through courses offered by an international faculty composed of
prominent scholars of international repute, and by a genuinely international student
body. In the previous cycles we enrolled students from 31
countries including China, USA, Mexico, Russia, Georgia, Estonia, Macedonia,
Croatia, Bulgaria, Hungary, Serbia, Germany, United Kingdom, Turkey,
Albania, Poland, Armenia, Norway, Slovenia, Ukraine, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Azerbaijan,
Slovakia, Finland, Ireland, Lithuania, Belarus, Moldova, Romania,
Austria and, of course, Italy.
Therefore, I would be extremely grateful if you could encourage your BA students to
consider applying to our two-year Master programme and, at the
same time, if you could forward this message to your colleagues interested in this
part of the world.
Should you need further information, please feel free to contact the Tutor of the
course at email@example.com or the Mirees Secretariat

Thank you very much for your kind attention and cooperation.
