Students who intend to minor in Russian should prepare their schedules in consultation with a Russian faculty adviser. To declare the minor and be assigned an adviser, please contact the Department Associate Chair in your college.


Students minoring in Russian will take a minimum of six courses numbered 1501 (Intermediate Russian I) and higher. These courses will normally include Russian language and literature (RUSS 2001), and three elective courses (or more, depending upon initial placement) to be selected in consultation with the Russian adviser. Students who place out of any of the following, RUSS 1501, 1502 and/or 2001, will replace them with upper-level courses.
