Both Lower and Upper College courses draw upon faculty expertise in history, literature, politics, economics, art, music, culture, and religious studies as they relate to Russia and Eurasia, either separately or in a comparative context.
Proficiency in the Russian language is a key component of the Russian and Eurasian Studies major from Bard College. The Russian course offerings range from beginning to advanced and include opportunities for study in Russia at the Bard-affiliated Faculty of Liberal Arts and Sciences (Smolny), St. Petersburg State University. Students may choose to specialize in a literature or social science track, or combine Russian and Eurasian Studies with another program of study.
Opportunities for Practical Experience
- RES majors are encouraged to participate in Bard’s study abroad program at Smolny College, a joint initiative of Bard and St. Petersburg State University.
- Students may enroll in summer intensive Russian language courses and/or semester or academic-year programs at Smolny, where Bard students combine a liberal arts curriculum with linguistic and cultural immersion by taking classes in Russian, side by side with Russian students.
