About the Department of Slavic and East European Languages and Cultures

The Department of Slavic and East European Languages and Cultures (SLAV) offers courses that meet a wide range of needs and interests in Russian, Polish, Czech, Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian, Ukrainian, Romanian, and Old Church Slavonic.

Advanced language courses are not only for the department's majors, but also for students specializing in other disciplines, particularly in the social sciences, natural sciences, and other languages and literatures. The department offers literature, culture, linguistics, and film courses that require no knowledge of a Slavic or East European language and that can be taken by any student interested in the Russian, Slavic, and East European area.
