The Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures offers a wide range of interdisciplinary courses in Russian and East European literature, film, history, and culture, as well as excellent language training in Russian, Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian, Polish and Czech. Our program provides customized courses of study, which you design in conjunction with faculty members, in order to support you as you find new ways to explore the REES region. We enthusiastically encourage study abroad experiences and will help you take advantage of the vast array of REES-specific grant and funding opportunities available on the University, National and International levels. Some of our students have gone on to careers in academia—our alumni currently teach at Princeton, UC Berkeley, and UNC, among other universities—while others have embarked on career paths in translation, publishing, journalism, library studies, international business, international law, and communications. Whatever path you choose, our program equips you with specialized regional knowledge that will allow you to become an expert on Russia and Eastern Europe.
