Russian and Slavic Languages and Literature

The Department of Central, Eastern and Northern European Studies offers a Minor in Russian Language. In addition, a fairly wide range of courses may be available in Russian and East European literatures and in the Ukrainian language, as well as a first-year course in Russian and Slavic cultures. Several courses are offered in Slavic literatures in translation, requiring no knowledge of a Slavic language.

Courses that may be offered include:

  • Language Courses: RUSS 100, 101, 102, 200, 215, 300, 315, 400, 401; UKRN 325
  • Introductory Course in Culture and Literature: SLAV 105
  • Other Courses in Russian Literature: RUSS 305, 407, 408, 409
  • Russian Literature in Translation: RUSS 206, 207, 306, 410, 411
  • Slavic Literatures in Translation: SLAV 307

Literature courses in translation are designed for students who are interested in broadening their knowledge of literature. They are especially recommended for students majoring or honouring in language and literature departments, history, political science, anthropology, modern european studies, sociology, and art history, visual art and theory, but are also open to students from all other programs. These courses are of special interest to students planning to pursue literary and gender studies of a comparative nature.
