You have plenty of opportunities to use your Russian, with trips to Brighton Beach, the Russian banya (public bath) in Manhattan, and the Russian theater, opera and ballet. You can teach Russian to children at New London's Regional Multicultural Magnet School and practice at the Knowlton Dining Hall Russian table.
Slavic Studies students at the intermediate and advanced levels from Connecticut College conduct interviews with members of local émigré communities and study emigration patterns out of Russia by engaging in global-local communities. Advanced-level students study Russian film, dissident culture, and contemporary Russian culture in the target language and through original Russian texts.
International opportunities and study abroad
Most students study in Russia during their junior year, and many complete internships or summer study in such countries as Czech Republic, Slovenia, and Russia. On campus, students partner via Skype with peers in Russia, Poland, and Bulgaria to discuss contemporary youth cultures, student activism and comparative education systems to gain global perspectives in preparation for study away.
