The Russian minor focuses on two specific outcomes: developing students’ linguistic proficiency and broadening their insights into Russian culture so that students may engage in meaningful interactions with Russian speakers throughout the world. The communication skills and transcultural awareness that students develop throughout the course of the minor prepare them for a wide range of opportunities and experiences, both in and beyond the classroom.
Complete all courses listed below unless otherwise indicated. Also complete any corequisite labs, recitations, clinicals, or tools courses where specified.
