This minor offers students a broad, cross disciplinary perspective on Russian culture, history, political institutions, economy and geography. It 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 Russian Studies minor requires 18 credits with a minimum of six credits of Russian language. Students should take courses in at least three different disciplines.

Total: 18 Credit Hours

Special topics courses can be applied to the minor with approval of the program coordinator. Students may also earn credit by studying in a program in Russia or any of the former Soviet states.
