Why study Russian? The U.S. government has identified Russian as a critical language, which means more experts in Russian language and culture are needed. It also means that many current and future jobs will be directly linked to being able to communicate in Russian, especially because Russia plays a major role in world politics, commerce, science, and technology. Russia is also the largest country in the world and there are more than 300 million Russian-speakers.
Russian is offered under the Critical Languages Program. Please follow the link below to learn more.
