The study of Russian attracts a broad spectrum of students. Some endeavor to read Russian literature in the original; some foresee using Russian in their professional lives. Some students come to us on a whim and fall in love with the sound and intricacies of Russian. Our department offers a full range of courses in language, literature, culture and the arts, from beginning to advanced. We have a lively and very friendly Russian club that sponsors speakers, films, concerts, get-togethers. Our off-campus program takes students to Moscow, where they study at Moscow University, Petersburg, and Lake Baikal in Siberia.

You can major or minor in this subject.
