Why Russian Studies?

The minor in Russian Studies offers a broadly based background in Russian culture. Depending on which electives are chosen, the student also acquires a more specialized knowledge of language, literature, or cultural studies. The Department offers courses in Russian as well as in translation, and the minor may be combined with other disciplines. Russian minors have found employment in teaching, government service, foreign trade and banking, communications, translating, and interpreting. Some students have continued on to do graduate work in Russian or Slavic Studies at Yale, Harvard, North­western, Berkeley, and American Uni­versity. Others have become certified as secondary school teachers. Science, social science, and pre-med minors have found the study of Russian to be particularly useful in their careers.
