The Russian Studies major and minor programs provide students with an integrated interdisciplinary knowledge of the Russian language and culture. They prepare students for graduate work leading to careers in international organizations, the foreign service, research, and teaching. The programs are also of value for students who wish to focus their liberal arts education on this dynamic and volatile geo-political region as part of an awareness of the growing importance of Russia and the Slavic world in current affairs. Students may wish to major in Russian Studies and another academic discipline, such as political science, international studies, history, the sciences, business administration, economics, media and communication, or another language.
