Russian Studies


The Russian Studies minor is a 5-course interdisciplinary program of study in the liberal arts that allows students to explore Russian-speaking regions of the world through courses in language, humanities, and social sciences. Through this themed, breadth-of-study minor, students develop the skills, knowledge, and qualities necessary to communicate and interact in culturally appropriate ways with speakers of the critical world language of Russian, more fully understand the literature, history, and politics of the Russian-speaking world, and become more global citizens. The specific courses comprising the Russian Studies minor provide skills and knowledge in Russian language, history, and culture.
