Most Slavic studies majors study abroad during their junior year on one of the following approved programs:
- The Bard-Smolny Program in St. Petersburg
- The School of Russian and Asian Studies (SRAS), with programs in nine locations
- The Moscow Art Theater Semester (MATS)
- Math in Moscow
- American Councils in Moscow, St. Petersburg and Vladimir
In addition to these programs, the department encourages shorter-term travel and research trips to Russia and other Slavic countries. Over the past decade, the department has led four fully-funded, course-based TRIPs (Travel Research Immersion Programs) to Russia for students taking the Elementary Russian sequence (in 2008, 2009, 2011 and 2014).
