This area-studies minor provides students the opportunity to explore aspects of the arts, cultures, histories, politics, societies, and thoughts of the peoples of Eastern Europe and Russia from an interdisciplinary perspective. Its chief purpose is to foster understanding of the region by recognizing its component diversity while deepening awareness of its often common experiences. For this minor, Eastern Europe and Russia are defined geographically, and respectively, as historically the lands east of the German and Italian states and west of the countries of the East Slavs, and as the territories that comprise the former Soviet Union.

The minor consists of 18 credits. The specific requirements of the program are as follows: all students will complete at least 6 credits in East European studies; at least 6 credits in Russian studies, and a total of 6 additional credits from one or both of the respective area studies. No individual course is mandatory for completion of the minor. Accordingly, any of the courses below may be chosen by students to fulfill the minor’s requirements.
