Russian and East European Studies Minor

The Russian and East European Studies minor is a multidisciplinary minor encompassing 18 credit hours to be selected from courses offered in the Departments of Economics, Foreign Languages, Geography, History and Political Science. The major purpose of this minor is to provide students with a deeper understanding of the Eastern European area (including Russia) and its culture.

Each student must achieve proficiency in the Russian language (up to the intermediate level), but only six credits can be applied to the area program or any other Slavic language. Each requirement can be met by College‑Level Examination Program® (CLEP) examinations.

Three credits of each subject taken within the Slavic area studies can also be applied to student’s major.

Students participating in the program are encouraged to go beyond the minimum requirements and take additional core curriculum requirement electives in this area. Additional courses can be taken with the approval of the Slavic Council at other Massachusetts state colleges and universities.

Each student who completes the program will be credited with a minor in the area, and in addition will receive “A Certificate of Completing Area Studies: Slavic.”

For further information about the minor, contact the Department of History.
