Undergraduate Program


Undergraduate courses are divided into three clusters: Russian classes, modular courses and electives. Students of the first and second years are expected to take basic Russian lessons focused on reading, grammar, conversation and listening. Juniors and seniors, beside language training, are offered six elective modules that have high relevance to further studies and the job market.
