Internships, Careers and Graduate School
Russia’s reemergence as an aggressive power on the world stage has resulted in increased demand for Russian majors and minors.
Russia’s war against Ukraine has sparked a national conversation about the neglect of Russian Studies over the past two decades and the dire need for young Russia specialists. Testifying to Russia's continued importance to national security, the U.S. State Department has designated Russian a "critical need language" and currently offers funding for further study, including the Critical Language Scholarships and the Boren Scholarships. Our graduates find that Russian language skills and cultural expertise open doors to careers in policy, academia, non-profits, business, and the arts.
