Russia, the largest country in the world, naturally offers much to explore, from arts and architecture to the economy and environment. The Russian studies major at Wheaton gives you a chance to explore this nation’s history and culture without an advanced language requirement. Our active and adventurous students engage campus in many ways, including Russian Table, a shared meal and conversation, and the colorful folk costume project. Many of our majors experience the culture firsthand by spending a semester in Russia or a Russian-speaking country.
For students interested in Russian in general, we offer two tracks, Russian Studies (a major and a minor, listed below), but also Russian Language and Literature.
