The College

Students can major in Russian language and literature, minor in Russian language, and minor in Slavic Studies. Russian and Slavic are concentration areas for the Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies (BIS). We are a relatively small academic section; students are never closed out of classes, and faculty members know who you are and want to see you do well. Sample titles of honors theses: The Momentary and The Eternal: A Translation and Analysis of Poems of Mira Lokhvitskaya and Linguistic Factors in Russian Comparative Complement Selection.

Student Profile: 
Adam Starbuck

"I chose my thesis topic because I wanted to combine my passion for Medicine and Russian in a way that would be beneficial to those who dealt with international health. My thesis was of the utmost importance to me because it reflects my goals of going to medical school and using my language skills to remove the societal barriers found in large hospitals."
