The minor is a part of Cross Disciplinary Programs.
This minor offers students a broad, cross disciplinary perspective on Russian culture, history, political institutions, economy and geography. This program deepens the students' understanding and knowledge of the Russian and non-Russian peoples of the former Soviet Union, and prepares them for careers in teaching, government and international business.
The minimum requirement for minor in Russian studies is 18 credit hours. With the approval of a program coordinator, six to eight credit hours of Russian language may be included. Students may also earn credit by studying in a program in Russia or any of the former Soviet states.
