Summer Language Intensives

Intensive Summer Russian Language Program

Every summer the department offers first- and second-year intensive Russian language courses, which provide a complete year of language (15 credits) in only nine weeks!  This condensed immersion program has several advantages:

    • 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.

The program also 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!
