Study of the Russian language attracts students who are interested in reading original Russian literature, who foresee practical applications in their choice of career or graduate work, and who enjoy the challenge of learning a demanding second language. The department instructs students in grammar and fundamental communicative skills, as well as literature and culture. Students can live in Russian House, and speakers, films, concerts, and language tables enhance the study of the language. Carleton is one of the only colleges in the United States to offer its own off-campus program in Russia, at Moscow State University.
