Russian Language and Literature

Students who want to achieve a high level of proficiency in the Russian language and study Russian literature can pursue a minor in Russian language and literature. The program offers elementary through third-year language courses and a number of courses on 19th- and 20th-century Russian literature (in translation) on a wide variety of topics. Students are strongly encouraged to study abroad.

Russian language and literature is an independent minor administered by Global Studies. Students undertaking this minor are encouraged to consider a major in Eurasian studies (through Global Studies), comparative literature and thought, or history, all of which can be pursued with a focus on Russia and the former Soviet Union.
