RUSS 201 (3 credits) has a prerequisite of two semesters of Russian (RUSS 101/102). Russian heritage speakers may be enrolled in the course upon taking a placement test prior to departure.

RUSS 25674 (3 credits) has no prerequisites. This course is taught in English and does not require any knowledge of Russian. However, heritage speakers and students with sufficient language skills have the option of getting 3 credits in RUSS 24674, which may be used towards fulfilling the Russian major requirement. Registering for it requires taking a language placement test prior to the start of the program and implies that most readings and final projects are carried out in Russian. Either course registration fulfills the "Diversity and Plurality" requirement.

Credits & Grades:

Students in this program will receive both credits and letter grades. Grades will count toward their Hunter GPA.
