The Russian major is intended to help you develop advanced language proficiency and acquire a deep understanding of Russian culture. The requirements are designed to allow you flexibility in pursuing your own interests (including study of related Slavic languages/cultures, if desired). Students often combine a Russian major with a second major in a related field, such as International Affairs, History, Linguistics, etc. Russian study can easily be combined with virtually any other major and will expand your future career opportunities.

All upper-division courses fulfilling the major requirements must be taken in residence with the exception of a maximum possible 9 hours of transfer credit. Upper-division transfer credit from a non-UGA study abroad program may be applied to the major, subject to approval by the department, and provided that credit for RUSS 2002 (or an equivalent course) was earned before participation in the program.
RUSS 2002 is the prerequisite for upper-division courses.
