Middle East and North African Studies


Russian and East European Studies

The collapse of Communism in Eastern Europe and the breakup of the Soviet Union afford access to greater opportunities to trained Americans in commercial, governmental and professional areas. However, the same developments make it more difficult to interpret the actions of Russia and other states in the region. The College of Arts and Sciences offers an undergraduate program on Russia and Eastern Europe, a broad multi-disciplinary course of study leading to a bachelor's degree and a certificate of proficiency in Russian and East European studies.

A broad liberal arts background provides a well-planned, comprehensive introduction to Russia and Eastern Europe, including to the fundamentals of the Russian language and the history, literature, politics and economics of the region. The program includes a minimum of 30 credits in language and area studies courses.
