The Russian Studies minor is designed to increase students’ knowledge and understanding of the politics, history, geography, culture, and language of Russia and Eastern Europe.
The minor consists of 18 semester hours. No course may be counted for both major and minor credit. Students must abide by policies (including prerequisites) and prohibitions established by their departments in their major fields. A student may take no more than 6 hours in a single department (9 in Political Science) unless he/she surpasses the required 18 hours (Study Abroad programs in Russia, the post-Soviet state, or Eastern Europe or the Special Topics courses dealing with that region will not count toward this limit).
