Russian Studies Minor

Phone: 843.953.5776

Raisa Gomer, Director

After the disintegration of the Soviet Union, Slavic countries in Eurasia opened their borders allowing an unprecedented exchange of ideas, culture and business throughout the world. The Russian Studies Program has developed as a multidisciplinary course of study combining the Russian language with courses related to Russian civilization, culture, history, politics and economics. The program is designed to provide students with the language skills, cultural exposure, and historical background needed to understand and interact with the citizens of these newly available countries both in the international community and at home.
