A great many opportunities are available for the person
knowledgeable in Russian: internships, work-study and study-tour
programs. The knowledge of the Russian language gained from majoring
will equip a college graduate for a variety of job opportunities in the
inter-culturally-competent global workforce, including international
development agencies, corporate foundations, and government-sponsored
institutions, as well as private and public corporations. A Russian
major can help build the career of enterprising students by giving them
the opportunity to obtain meaningful and rewarding employment in a
number of foreign settings.
As the twenty-first century evolves, international employment
opportunities will continue to grow. At this point in time international
commerce is a basic ingredient of nearly every business enterprise.
Each day business—and of course, government—grow more global in
nature. Professionals in every field are being challenged to acquire and
demonstrate language and cultural acumen applicable to the world of
business. The people who will make multi-national efforts effective are
those individuals who have a quality education and the grasp of another
culture and language.
The department can arrange for students of Russian to study in St.
Petersburg. Depending upon the nature of the courses, credit may be
granted toward the major and toward their degree at Queens College. The
academic adviser can supply further information about these programs.
