There are four majors available to students in the department. Prospective students are encouraged to consult with a member of the faculty as early as possible in order to determine the major track and selection of courses that will best serve her background and interests.
Note: A student in this major must design her program in close consultation with her adviser in order to insure intellectual, disciplinary, and regional coherence.
Note: In consultation with her adviser, a student may elect to take one or more courses devoted to a region other than Russia that is located on the territory of the former Soviet Union.
Identical to the above, but requires the completion of three years of language study and courses taken in the relevant region.
A total of five courses beyond the second year of Russian are required for the minor in Russian Language and Literature.
