Overview

About the Degree: 

The undergraduate program in Russian is designed to provide students with communicative proficiency in the Russian language and knowledge of important aspects of Russian culture.

Academics

What you will learn: 

Although the University and the department strongly encourage study abroad and offer opportunities for its pursuit in Kiev and Moscow, we recognize that many students will not be able to stay in Europe for extended periods of time during or after their course of study. The program of study is therefore not limited to analyzing specific aspects of Russian culture, but generally intended to sharpen students' critical skills and strengthen their ability to express themselves. It is also designed to raise students' cross-cultural awareness, to help them realize the uniqueness of their own background and understand it as socially and historically constructed.
