Russian (Minor)

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. Despite the fall of the Soviet Union, Russia has remained an active player in world affairs. Russia's continued presence on the current international stage makes knowledge of Russian language and culture a valuable asset for students interested in government, diplomacy and international affairs and commerce.

The Russian language program cooperates with the Melikian Center to offer a transdisciplinary baccalaureate certificate in Russian, Eurasian and East European Studies for students in agribusiness, anthropology, architecture, economics, geography, history, political science, religious studies, Russian, sociology and women's studies.

Students are encouraged to study abroad. The ASU exchange program in Russian language and translation offers students the opportunity to study in Moscow, St. Petersburg or Kazan.
