Today Russia's extensive natural resources and other business opportunities stimulate the interest of many businesses throughout the United States and other parts of the world. Cognizant of this reality, the Russian Program strives to implement courses to respond to these various interests, which are also evident among our students. As a result, the program attempts to balance traditional academic offerings with such practically-oriented courses as Business Russian, the Contemporary Russian Press, and a Translation Workshop. Many business, science, and international relations majors take Russian as a minor or as a second major.
