Russian Minor

University Park, College of the Liberal Arts (RUS)

The Russian minor is designed for students who want to study the language, literature, and culture of Russia. Russian is spoken through the former Soviet Union and widely understood in the countries of Eastern Europe. The Department of Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures offers an array of courses in Russian language, literature, and culture. Study abroad in Russia at St. Petersburg University under the University's study abroad program is available. For the Russian minor, students must accumulate 18 credits (9 of them at the 400 level) in Russian. The Russian minor leads to various employment opportunities. Recipients of the Russian minor have found employment with businesses having contact with the former Soviet Union, with various agencies of the U.S. government, in the educational, journalistic and publishing fields, and in the travel industry.
