Field of Study: Russian Studies
Description: The Department offers a full Honours Program in Russian for students intending to pursue graduate studies or advanced careers in the field. Students must complete 60 credits in the Program, as well as maintaining a CGPA in accordance with Faculty requirements. All students applying for an Honours in Russian must consult with an academic advisor in the Department for approval of their program. Normally, 200-level courses are taken in U1, 300 in U2 and 400 in U3. By arrangement with the Department and subject to University approval, transfer credits will be accepted from Department-approved exchange/immersion programs. Up to 9 credits, in total, can be taken towards a student’s Honours program from courses offered in other departments in the Faculty, listed at the end of this section.

Many opportunities are open to students with qualifications in Russian studies. Students may be interested in the organization of human society, comparative literature, linguistics – Russian studies are highly relevant to all of these. In addition, because of similar problems in geography, climate, industrial, and economic growth, Russian studies may have a particular fascination for the Canadian student. Since most Eastern European countries have academic exchange programs with Canada, well-qualified students should not encounter much difficulty in continuing their university studies in Russia or in Eastern Europe.
