CofC Russian Summer Abroad Program

Dr. Oksana Ingle will lead our 2017 Summer Study Abroad Program in Russia. Please contact her at for further information


This program has been in partnership with Mordovia State University (MSU) in Saransk, Russia since 2009. The MSU Russian language and literature department will coordinate housing arrangements, cultural activities, and be available to help 24/7 in case of emergencies.
This program will be comprised of two courses:
– LTRS 210: 19th Century Literature- we will visit the cities and walk the streets where Pushkin, Tolstoy, and Dostoevsky walked and wrote their great works.
– RUSS 314: Russian Conversation and Composition (The Russian’s World: Life and Language) will include two parts: one in class and one as a field research and writing project.

The entire program is planned for 29 days, with 4 days in St. Petersburg, 2 in Moscow, 2 in Kazan, the capital of the Republic of Tatarstan, which brands itself as the “Third Capital” of Russia. The rest of our time will be spent in Saransk staying at the university dormitory, attending classes, and spending time with Russian peers.
