Degrees and Programs

The department offers courses in the Russian language, literature and culture. Elective courses in Russian provide intermediate and advance instruction in both language and literature. Students who have had previous training in the Russian language, as well as native speakers of Russian, should consult the undergraduate Adviser in Russian for correct placement.

Major in Russian

Required (36 credits): A minimum of 24 elective credits in Russian language (above Russian 203) and literature and culture (starting with Russian 150) with a grade of B- or better. The rest of the credits should be selected from courses in related fields, such as linguistics, comparative literature, history, philosophy, English, and other foreign languages and literatures. Students are urged to register with the Undergraduate Adviser - early in their College career - their intention to major.

Minor in Russian

Required: Minimum of 15 credits. May be started with any course above Russian 203. Students should consult with the Undergraduate Adviser and fill out a concentration form before the fifth semester so that the minor will be recorded on their transcript.

Students interested in Russian and East European area studies may consider pursuing an interdisciplinary major program, combining Russian language and literature with other disciplines related to the area, under the supervision of the Director of Interdisciplinary and Special Studies and the departments concerned.
