The Russian Language and Literature major
is designed to provide students with a sound knowledge of Russian language, culture and literature.

The Minor in Russian language
requires a total of five courses done entirely in Russian.

The Minor in Russian language and literature
requires a total of five courses, but allows you to do one, possibly two, culture course(s) in English.
