Russian Program

The Russian Program has been part of the curriculum at Queens College for nearly fifty years. Our program seeks, through the achievement of an accurate reading knowledge, adequate aural comprehension, and conversational proficiency, to prepare students to understand, appreciate and use professionally the language, literature, and culture of the Russian-speaking world. Courses offered under the Program's auspices stimulate the exchange of knowledge and technological skills, strengthening cooperation and understanding among individuals, businesses, and organizations.

The department has also offered courses in Belarusan, Polish, Serbo-Croatian, and Ukrainian language and literature. A Spring Slavic Lecture Series brought major Belarusan, Polish, Russian, and Ukrainian writers to campus. A number of leading writers, including Nobel laureate Joseph Brodsky, Bella Akhmadulina, Bulat Okudzhava, Vladimir Voinovich, and Andrei Voznesensky have lectured or taught at the College.

The department houses a chapter of the National Slavic Honor Society, Dobro Slovo. Membership is open to students who filfill the following requirements:

  1. A cumulative index of at least 3.0
  2. At least four (4) Russian courses beyond 203, totalling 12 credits
  3. An average of 3.3 in all Russian electives.
