Russian at USC
The Russian Program at USC
***Click here for information about the Russian Program's NEW study abroad program in Ufa, Russia! The inaugural group is in Russia May-June, 2013, and plans are already underway for the 2014 trip!***
The Russian Program at the University of South Carolina immerses students in the study of Russian culture, language, and literature. Students studying Russian at USC have been attracted to the program by innovative classes, award-winning teaching, and individual attention; committed faculty dedicated to the success of their students; and engaged and motivated fellow classmates.
The program offers a range of courses, the only major in Russian in South Carolina, and a popular minor in Russian. Many choose to double major in Russian and another field, often International Studies, business, or one of the sciences. Each year, the Russian Program's Ludmilla Ignatiev Callaham Award provides a $3000 scholarship to an advanced student in both Russian and the sciences, mathematics, or engineering. Russian program graduates have gone on to a wide range of exciting career opportunities.
Students receive guidance in exploring study abroad options. These include the new program in Ufa, Russia, as well as exciting USC initiatives involving undergraduate research-based learning in Russia, developed in conjunction with the South Carolina Honors College. During the school year, a weekly Russian table meets near campus, and students run an active Russian Club.
