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:

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.
