Intensive Summer 2014 Russian Language Program
First-, Second-, and Fourth-Year Russian
JUNE 23RD – AUGUST 22ND 2014
The Intensive Summer Language Program provides a complete year (15 quarter credits) of language credits in only nine weeks!
Advantages: The Intensive Summer Language Program has advantages for students in a variety of situations:
- It enables undergraduates who begin their study of Russian after their freshman year to complete the four-year program in as little as two years and two summers (eight quarters).
- It provides an opportunity for students from colleges and universities with limited offerings in Russian to complete the four years of language that are required by many graduate programs.
- It allows graduate students in any discipline whose research requires a knowledge of Russian to begin study of the language, or to continue it at an appropriate level.
Enrollment: As well as students already matriculated at the University of Washington, the Intensive Summer Language Program is open to non-UW students registering through the UW Summer Quarter.
Russian Schedule: First-, second-, and fourth-year Russian are taught in the morning from 8:30 a.m. to 11:50 a.m. After a break for lunch, first-year Russian meets for one additional hour: 1:10 – 2:10 p.m.
The program includes extracurricular activities such as films, language tables for conversation practice, singing, poetry-reading and drama performances, and lectures on Slavic cultures. A number of recreational activities are usually organized, depending on the interests of the student group, ranging from hikes and bicycle rides to museum visits, concert outings, and even the culinary arts!
