The studies in Russian Philology with English Philology are oriented towards the students' proficiency in two major languages at a least B2+ level according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). However, a "philologist" is not only a language expert, but also an excellent specialist in the history, literature and culture of a given country. Within the framework of a given specialization, students have an opportunity to acquire necessary knowledge of phenomena occurring in the field of history, literature and culture of Russia, Great Britain and the USA, as well as to acquire practical skills in intercultural communication and translation and interpretation.
