About
Study Russian and Russia’s rich culture and history in Moscow, the emerging cultural capital of the world! Language classes are devised to prepare students for the opportunities presented by Russia’s largest city, and coordinated with onsite (English language) study of the artistic monuments that convey the country’s rich history, all while living with Russian students on the beautiful campus of Moscow Humanities University.  Students, including those just beginning the language, gain immersion experience and orient themselves in Moscow, in addition to spending a week in St. Petersburg, Russia’s second capital. Students will also visit historic Novgorod, Tula, and spend a night in the countryside at Tolstoy’s estate, seeing more of the geographically largest country in the world! A&M faculty will lead them to many additional sites and activities, guiding them to make the best use of this experience. Courses will prepare beginning students to be able to conduct meaningful business in Russia, while the basic grammar skills of intermediate students will be developed to the advanced level, giving them successful experience in Russian expression; all will gain an essential background in the culture and history.
Optional 10-week stay program (May 20-July 20): It is highly recommended that students enrolling in this faculty-led, 5-week program extend their stay for 5 more weeks of intensive language study at GRINT, our host institution; this will allow them to complete  their INTS international experience and/or fulfill Project Go! requirements (please see a brochure for a 10-week Russian program for more info). Homestays are available and Liberal Arts majors can apply for their college’s international education grants.
