The program offers considerable resources and innovative instruction to students interested in professions that may include a significant international component, global travel and communications, and intercultural awareness, particularly pertaining to Russian-speaking countries. Students interested in becoming global professionals can pursue their selected majors while enjoying carefully planned intensive programming domestically and overseas in the Russian language. The program welcomes applications from undergraduates of all majors and at any level of prior experience in Russian.
The Russian Flagship Program is a collaborative initiative between the Department of Language and Literacy Education and the Department of Germanic and Slavic Studies, funded by The Language Flagship, a public/private partnership sponsored by the National Security Education Program (NSEP).
