Russian Studies Minor

Curious about the world’s largest geo-political entity? (Russia occupies approximately 1/6 of the world’s land mass).  Truman offers a variety of courses in Russian language, literature, culture and history.   You can explore courses in Russian as your fancy takes you, or you can formalize your study by minoring.  As a Russian Studies Minor, you study one of the top-10 high-frequency languages of the world. Russian is one of the six official languages of the United Nations and is spoken by the largest ethnic group in Europe.

A Broad-based Understanding
Thanks to Truman’s liberal arts emphasis, your minor studies will provide you with an introduction to the arts, literature, language, history and culture of Russia.

Study Abroad
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.
