Russian Major & Minor
As a Russian Major or Minor, you'll be studying one of the top-10 high-frequency languages of the world — one of the six official languages of the United Nations — spoken by the largest ethnic group in Europe.
A Broad-based Understanding
Thanks to Truman's liberal arts emphasis, your studies will expose you to the arts, literature, language and culture of Russia for a complete understanding of the language.
Upon graduation, Russian majors can communicate with native speakers of Russian, possess a critical appreciation of Russian literature, and are well versed in Russian cultural history. This major prepares you to enter the most competitive U.S. graduate programs.
Total immersion remains the most effective technique for mastering a language. So you'll want to take advantage of our intensive Russian courses in Moscow during both the regular and summer sessions.
