The Department of Central Eurasian Studies (CEUS) is part of the Indiana University School of Global and International Studies. When pursuing a major in the department you work with faculty who have lived, traveled and studied in Central Eurasia, giving you access to some of the latest research in the field. There is no comparable program available anywhere in the United States.
The Central Eurasian Studies degree requires study in one or more Central Eurasian language. Advanced coursework gives you a depth of knowledge about at least one of the following geographic regions: Tibet, the Central Asian Muslim republics, Xinjiang, Afghanistan, Iran, Turkey, Hungary and/or the Baltics. Students develop language proficiency and cultural competency while studying current cultural and political situations within their historical contexts.
CEUS offers two undergraduate minors for students majoring in other subjects: a minor in Central Eurasian Studies, and a minor in Central Eurasian Studies with Language Certification.
