Students pursuing a minor in Russian gain novice to intermediate language skills and an understanding of the literature and cultures of Russian-speaking peoples and regions. Russian is the fourth most commonly spoken language in the world (after Chinese, English and Spanish) and is the lingua franca of the former Soviet empire, with more than 300 million speakers worldwide. Since the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, Russian, other Slavic languages and Central Asian languages remain strategic, critical languages, with government scholarships to study abroad, do research and internships, and find jobs in government agencies.
