Undergraduate Degree in Slavic and Eurasian Studies

Welcome!

When students choose to study Slavic or Eurasian Studies they open doors to a great variety of course offerings. Our courses range from the Slavic countries to Eurasia, and encompass a variety of cultural, political, social, economic, gender, and foreign relations history.

The BA programs Czech Language and Culture and Russian Language and Culture were consolidated into a BA in Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies on December 16, 2011.  Students who are currently majoring in one or more of these degree programs should meet with an advisor to prepare for these changes. Students enrolled in these programs before the changes will follow the original path of study.

For more information, please visit the CREEES website
