Russian Minor

Requirements for the Minor in Russian Studies (RUS)

All courses offered for the minor must be passed with a letter grade of C or higher.

Completion of the minor requires at least 21 credits.

    1. HUR 249 Russia Today
    2. HUR 141, HUR 142 Introduction to Russian Literature I, II
    3. Twelve credits of 300- and 400-level RUS and HUR courses

A Russian concentration of 15 credits can also be created through the Multidisciplinary Studies Major. Students should consult with the RUS Program Coordinator in planning a minor or a concentration in MTD.

Placement in Language Courses for Incoming Students

The prerequisites for each course indicate which language level the course is geared towards. As a rule of thumb, one year of high-school foreign-language study is considered the equivalent of one semester of study at the college level for non-native speakers. Heritage speakers, by contrast, are placed according to their relative mastery of both the spoken and written language. Students are advised to consult the coordinator of the Russian minor.
