Center for Eurasian, Russian and East European Studies (CERES)
The Center for Eurasian, Russian and East European Studies (CERES)at Georgetown University directs one of the nation's preeminent Master's degree programs and hosts a rich outreach program of events on the region, for K-12 educators and audiences in Washington, D.C. and nationwide.
Founded in 1959 to prepare scholars who understood the Soviet Union and could analyze its secretive system, the Center has evolved in the wake of the Soviet Union’s demise and today incorporates a variety of scholarly disciplines for the study of this culturally rich region. With an active program of community outreach, CERES provides a broad and deep understanding of Eurasian, Russian and East European affairs to audiences at Georgetown and throughout the Washington community.
