Russian and Russian Studies

Russia, the largest country in the world, naturally offers much to explore, from arts and architecture to the economy and environment. The Russian studies program at Wheaton gives you a chance to explore this nation’s history, culture, and language, with or 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 students experience Russian culture firsthand by spending a semester abroad in Moscow, St. Petersburg, or perhaps in another Russian-speaking country.




100% of Russian Studies majors from the past five years have found employment or achieved a service opportunity within six months of graduation *
