Bachelor of Arts in Russian

The Russian program teaches cultural literacy by providing language competence and a knowledge of texts, films and other forms of representation. 

Students are able to enter the language programs at any level: beginner, intermediate or advanced. Intensive language training is provided with the aid of audio-visual materials and use of a computerized language laboratory. 

The Russian literature and culture program aim at providing familiarity with the major texts and issues in literary and cultural history. 

The aim is also to enrich the student’s understanding of the Slavic/Russian contribution to the European and the North American cultural heritage. A number of courses are taught in English translation; higher level courses are taught in Russian.

Exchange and travel opportunities
Annual summer programs to Kiev (Ukraine) and St. Petersburg (Russia)
1-2 semester exchanges for students of all disciplines to St. Petersburg
Full credit-recognition of summer courses and study-abroad credits in University of Manitoba programs

Note: language and culture training have proven particularly valuable for those students who, by linking their linguistic ability to another skill, have found jobs in the expanding market for those with knowledge of Eastern Europe. 

Such jobs are available from the secretarial to the senior executive level. From the immersion in another culture, students become more effective communicators.
