The Russian degree is the exploration of the language, literature, and culture of Russian-speaking countries. The BA in Russian offers you the possibility of participating in this vibrant cultural tradition first hand. The major in Russian consists of 27 credits in Russian beyond RUSS 1200. Within these 27 hours, students must meet minimum requirements within three categories: language, literature, and culture. The Russian faculty strongly encourages all majors to spend at least one semester (or summer) studying abroad, preferably after their second year of the language. Given the liberal arts foundation of a degree in Russian, students pursue careers in a variety of fields or continue their studies. Graduates have pursued careers in journalism, tourism, diplomacy, and education.
