Russian (minor)

Russian Buildings

The Russian language and culture program includes three years of Russian language study with particular emphasis on speaking and listening skills.

Russian Language Study TourTo supplement this basic language sequence, the College participates in an ongoing series of faculty and student exchanges during the regular academic year with the

Petrozavodsk State University in Petrozavodsk, Duluth's sister city in Russia. In addition, American students of Russian may participate in a four-week summer Russian language camp in Petrozavodsk operated by the Petrozavodsk State University, or they can help host Russian students who come to an English language camp at the College in alternate summers.


Students must take a minimum of 20 credits beyond RUS 1111 - Beginning Russian Language and Culture, including:

  • RUS 1112 - Beginning Russian Language and Culture II
  • RUS 2201 and 2202 - Intermediate Russian.
  • Either RUS/ENG 2280 - Literature in Translation or HIS 3301 - Russia since 1900
  • Either RUS 2209 - Russian Language Camp or RUS 3301 and 3302 - Advanced Russian Grammar. Other study abroad experiences may be accepted in fulfillment of RUS 2209.
