The Russian language and culture program includes three years of Russian language study with particular emphasis on speaking and listening skills.
To supplement this basic language sequence, the College participates in an ongoing series of faculty and student exchanges during the regular academic year with the Karelian State Pedagogical University in Petrozavodsk, Duluth's sister city in Russia. In addition, American students of Russian may participate in a five-week summer Russian language camp in Petrozavodsk operated by the Pedagogical University, or they may want to help host Russian students who come to an English language camp at the College in alternate summers.
A minimum of 20 credits beyond RUS 1111 Beginning Russian Language and Culture, including
