|Field of Study:||Russian Language and Literature
Russian scholars ask questions such as: How did the Slavic languages develop? Why did the Soviet Union fall? Is Russia the eastern flank of Europe or the heartland or another civilization?
Studying Russian will not only give you an opportunity to acquire one of the world’s languages and to gain systematic knowledge of its history and structure — it will also introduce you to Russia, a country with glorious and tumultuous history, fascinating culture and traditions, great literature that crosses national borders and transcends times; a country with major political influence in the world, both in the past and in the future. Besides developing valuable language skills necessary for fluent communication in Russian, you will be encouraged to practice critical and independent thinking, to challenge assumptions, including perhaps your own, and to ask important and profound questions.
