About the Center
In 1984, the Center for Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies (formerly Post-Soviet and East European Studies) was established at The University of Texas at Austin.
In 1988, the U.S. Department of Education designated The University of Texas a National Resource Center for Russian and East European Studies and from 1988-2010 CREEES was awarded funds for Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) Fellowships.
CREEES now includes 60 faculty members from nearly 20 different departments and administrative units across campus.
Each year, CREEES offers about 50 courses in the languages of the area and 60 courses in the social sciences, humanities, and professional schools relevant to the study of the former Soviet Union and Central and Eastern Europe.
CREEES also offers BA and MA degrees as well as four dual-degree programs.
New Polish Studies Endowment
