Pitt Slavic invites applications to its program, which provides a full range of courses, with an emphasis on Russian cultural studies. The department has supported recent dissertations on Soviet postmodernist culture, culture of the Belomor Canal, post-Soviet philosophy, the Soviet anekdot, television serials, and Thaw cinema. All PhD recipients in the past twelve years have received academic job offers or prestigious post-doctoral fellowships, including from Johns Hopkins, Princeton, Stanford Humanities Center, and University College London.

In addition to extensive training and mentoring; PhD students participate regularly in international conferences at a relatively early stage; they may help organize the annual Russian Film Symposium ( ); or edit the Department’s journal, Studies in Slavic Cultures ( Alongside their primary study, graduate students also typically obtain MA or PhD certificates in several interdepartmental programs: 
. Cultural Studies (
. Film Studies (
. Russian and East European Studies (
. Women’s Studies (
By the time they receive their PhD, many students will have obtained teaching experience in culture, cinema, language, and literature courses in both team-taught and stand-alone formats. 

A new PhD in Slavic/Film Studies offers an interdisciplinary and interdepartmental degree that stresses the history, theory, and aesthetics of international cinema, video, television, and new media. While the student will earn a PhD in Film Studies (granted by the Film Studies Program), he or she will also be a full member of Slavic, fulfilling its requirements (many of which will overlap). Interested students should submit applications simultaneously to Slavic and the Film Studies PhD program at

Financial aid (non-teaching fellowships and teaching assistantships) is available to qualified applicants. Applications will be accepted until 1 February. Applications must be submitted electronically at For more information about academic programs, faculty, students, alumni, application procedures, and deadlines see
