The Slavic Studies Department has long been a leader in interdisciplinary studies: our program includes courses in language, literature, art history, film, gender studies, theater, history, environmental studies, and government. The major in Slavic Studies is interdisciplinary and flexible in its design: all students meet with the department chair upon declaring a major to develop a plan of study that incorporates their individual interests into their academic program.

Students majoring in Slavic Studies may also earn a certificate from one of the College's innovative interdisciplinary centers. Many of our students combine a Slavic Studies major with an international studies certificate through the Toor Cummings Center for International Studies and the Liberal Arts (CISLA).

Students may also earn a certificate from one of the College's three other interdisciplinary centers, whose programs include a challenging combination of coursework, original research, and a funded summer internship:

  • Ammerman Center for Arts and Technology
  • Goodwin-Niering Center for the Environment
  • Holleran Center for Community Action and Public Policy

Students may also choose to focus on questions of race and ethnicity across the disciplines through the College's Center for the Comparative Study of Race and Ethnicity.
