Return to Academic Programs Return to: Academic Programs

Major Requirements

Academic requirements for the Slavic studies major may be fulfilled through one of two options.

Option 2

  • One year of primary Slavic language above the intermediate level. The language may be Russian, Polish, Slovak, or Bosnian/Serbian/Croatian.
  • One year of a second Slavic language at any level. The language can be Russian, Polish, Slovak, Bosnian/Serbian/Croatian, Ukranian, Bulgarian, Macedonian, or Czech.
  • Eighteen credits of designated Slavic department courses in literature, film, and culture. Students must take three literature courses, one film course, and two courses in Slavic culture. One of the above must be a W-course. Six credits of Dietrich School courses with a strong Slavic component (courses found in the Russian and East European studies listings) may be substituted, with the advisor’s approval.
  • Six credits of Study Abroad or designated Slavic courses in any of the categories above. If students choose a language course, the number of credits may be six to ten.


The first two years of language study do not count as credits toward the major, unless the first-year language course is taken as part of Option 2.
