The Center for Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies has compiled this list of local translators and tutors from among current and past students, as well as affiliated members of the community. Any fees are to be arranged between the parties involved.
Additionally, the CREEES Outreach Program maintains a library of materials specifically for use by K-12 educators in their classrooms. You will find a list of books, videos and other resources for learning and teaching about Russia, Eastern Europe, and Eurasia.
The Department of Slavic and Eurasian Studies and CREEES maintain a DVD library of materials specifically for use by students taking RUS, POL, SC, CZ and SLavic and CREEES faculty. The DVD library contains mostly Russian movies, but there are also Czech, Macedonian, Serbo-Croatian, Albanian, Polish, Tajik, Kyrgyz, Hungarian, Armenian movies. Thanks to the generous donation of the Austin Polish Society the Library received over 30 Polish movies.
Credit by examination
In some cases, students may receive credit for language courses taken in high school, or may "place out" of a course by showing a certain level of proficiency. Some languages have standardized tests available; some require a department-administered exam (DAE). Further details are determined by the language you are studying and the level of proficiency you have attained.
To find out more about this process:
- Contact your academic advisor to discuss your language requirements
- Contact the Student Development Specialist at the Department of Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) (formerly the Measurement and Evaluation Center) to determine if a test is available.
- An upper-level course may require a department-administered exam – the CTL will tell you which forms are required and can help you make special arrangements with the Department of Slavic and Eurasian Studies.
