Program Overview

The Russian minor allows students to enrich their major program with language skills and cultural understanding. Minors elect five courses at the 3000- or 4000-level in literature, culture, linguistics, film and/or art, which offer rich content and sharpen analytic and critical thinking skills. Frequent writing assignments and speaking activities reinforce clarity of thought and expression, and small classes offer individual attention and encourage dialog, collaboration, and openness. Many minors participate in one of our study abroad programs.

In addition, a minor in Russian helps students acquire other types of abilities leading to success in the job market: communication skills, analytical skills, interpersonal skills, a capacity for problem solving, and the ability to learn quickly.

Common major disciplines of students minoring in Russian include journalism, political science, education, sociology, or business. These students find employment in print or broadcast media, government, teaching, social services, or industry because they possess career-specific skills in addition to general knowledge and language proficiency.
