What is Slavic Studies?

As a Slavic Studies student, you’ll focus on the language, literature, and culture of Russia in a historical context, developing intensive cultural literacy and communication skills through humanities-oriented training. You can choose from five concentrations: Polish Studies, South Slavic Studies, Czech Studies, Ukrainian Studies, and Russian Language, Literature, and Culture. You’ll also be encouraged to study abroad in places like Moscow, St. Petersburg, Vladimir, Prague, and Krakow to expand your studies and experience educational opportunities not available in the United States.
