Russian Studies

The interdisciplinary major and minor in Russian Studies combine Russian language study with coursework in other disciplines, including religion, history, literature, film, foreign culture, women’s and gender studies, and international studies.

For the Russian Studies major, a student is required to successfully complete three years of language study, including a semester abroad in Russia. In addition, a student must successfully complete three elective courses from approved Russian Studies course offerings.

The Russian Studies minor may be taken in conjunction with any major of the student’s choice. Students should consult with the faculty of departments of interest. Courses normally do not count for both a major and a minor.

For the Russian Studies minor, a student is required to successfully complete two years of Russian language study. The program has a coordinator who advises students and faculty on curriculum matters.
