Major Requirements

To complete the major in Russian, students may choose from among three options:

1. An option in Russian language and literature (36 credits) is intended for students whose primary goal is language proficiency and a thorough knowledge of Russian literary culture.

2. An option in Russian literature and history (36 credits) is designed for students with a broad interest in literature and language and who wish to do structured, interdisciplinary work that examines Russian literature within its historical and political contexts.

In addition to these options, students with an exclusive interest in acquiring language proficiency may elect to pursuea Certificate in Russian Language Proficiency (21 credits of work exclusively in Russian language courses).

Scholastic Standing

Students must complete all required course work with grades of C or better.

Option in Russian Language and Literature

The option in Russian language and literature aims to provide a solid training in the Russian language and a broad introduction to Russian culture, particularly literary culture, in the prerevolutionary, Soviet, and post-Soviet periods. It provides a context in which students can explore the ways that literature has formed and has been formed by larger social and cultural forces. While its central focus is the study of literature, majors are encouraged to study literary discourse in the context of other discursive forms, particularly history, art history, philosophy, and political science. It also is recommended highly that students who wish to continue their studies of Russian literature in graduate school acquire proficiency in another Slavic or East European language or French or German and that they consider course work in comparative literature. Students are urged to do some language course work during Summer Session and to consider strongly summer programs in Russia.

The option in Russian language and literature consists of 36 credits beyond 01:860:201,202 Second-Year Russian. Students whose knowledge of Russian places them beyond 01:860:302 are required to substitute other courses to complete 36 credits.
