Overview

Undergraduate Program

As an integral part of the undergraduate program, CIS students also choose a foreign language relevant to their area of concentration and develop communication skills in this language through classes offered by the Department of Modern Languages, Literatures and Linguistics.

Finally, CIS students are required to spend at least one academic term, preferably a year, working abroad or studying at an international university of their choice with the approval of CIS.

Majors

In the process of completing an CIS degree, students obtain a number of useful skills that will make them more competitive in an increasingly international job market.

International Communication and Adaptability - CIS students study at least 16 hours of a foreign language which, combined with a study abroad experience, allows students to become proficient in speaking, reading and writing a foreign language and to more readily adjust to new and different environments.

Cultural Awareness - Through a combination of coursework and study abroad experience, SIAS students learn about foreign cultures and customs, develop inter-cultural skills, and become more sensitive toward and welcoming of cultural diversity.

Academic Tools - CIS students develop a broad base of knowledge in their area of focus, the ability to conduct research and analyze information from a variety of sources, and the written and oral communication skills necessary to express their thoughts effectively.

The Bachelor of the Russian and East European Studies undergraduate program is offered at the University of Oklahoma .
