Welcome to the Carleton College Russian Department!

Russian students at Carleton don’t just gain a thorough mastery of the language. Each student is also able to focus on a particular area of interest. Some choose a traditional literature major. Others pursue advanced coursework in such fields as history, sociology, or cinema. The department also offers an immersive off-campus program in Moscow.

Stay awhile. Enjoy some tea and bliny. Explore the marvels of Russian studies! Start with our Department Overview and Guide for New Students, read more about our courses and study abroad, or just look around for links and friends.
