Watch the episode about the Institute of International Relations and World History at Lobachevsky State University of Nizhny Novgorod. The cluster of UNN “International Relations” programs offers course that explore a range of periods and topics; and multi-disciplinary curriculum is delivered by top-class faculty. Some graduates take entry-level political jobs in practical fields – domestic politics and diplomacy, international business, and intelligence analysis, while others pursue jobs in business, law, or do graduate research afterward. Political science jobs also involve working in government relations, the media, or marketing. Apparently hardly anyone thinks of military interpreting/ translating as an exclusively male occupation these days. That was certainly the case in the Soviet Union where the Translation Studies at the Foreign Languages Departments was one of the most prestigious and secretive programs. One of the main advantages of the program is an opportunity for learning a number of European and Eastern languages (at the student’s choice). Now you have a chance to learn what the curriculum to build interpreting skills is, where the graduates work and who pays for their education.
