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 (http://www.rusfilm.pitt.edu ); or edit the Department's journal, Studies in Slavic Cultures (http://www.pitt.edu/~slavic/
. Cultural Studies (http://pitt.edu/~cultural/)
. Film Studies (http://www.pitt.edu/~filmst/)
. Russian and East European Studies (http://www.ucis.pitt.edu/
. Women's Studies (http://pitt.edu/~wstudies)
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 http://www.english.pitt.edu/
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 athttps://app.applyyourself.com/
