General information
We offer both single honours in Russian and combined honours with various programmes, including another language, comparative literature, film studies, linguistics, as well as business management, politics, geography, etc. In either case, students pursue a rigorous core course in the Russian language, which leads them to advanced proficiency in listening, reading, speaking and writing the language. Students without prior exposure to Russian can start an intensive preliminary ab initio course, which gives them in one year the equivalent of an A level in Russian. In this way students make rewardingly quick progress and can then place into the regular first year and proceed normally. Native speakers of Russian are offered an advanced translation course and dedicated tuition in grammar and stylistics to maintain their Russian in good form. Language courses are complemented with options in Russian literature, film, and linguistics. Advanced students can also choose a year long class in Liaison Interpreting, which provides practical skills in oral translation–a unique feature of our programme. Every year we invite prominent personalities from Russia (filmmakers, scholars, artists, etc.), who offer “cultural enrichment” classes and additional opportunity for oral conversation. We encourage students to study in Russia, either in the summer or during the academic year, but we don’t require study abroad.
