Our study programme is suitable for you:
Estonian Studies provides knowledge of Estonian language, culture, society, politics and history, as well as opportunities to learn the Estonian language and enhance skills of translating literature. Nowhere in the world can one get better quality knowledge on these topics than in Estonia, taught by the most distinguished scholars in their field.
The MA programme suits not only those who have only passing knowledge of Estonia but also those who have more detailed prior knowledge and wish to enhance their knowledge and skills. All our students will be able to develop their Estonian language skills.
