Introduction

The Russian and East European Institute (REEI) offers an interdisciplinary program designed to give undergraduates comprehensive training in the Russian and East European areas. The university offers a wide range of Russian and East European courses in 26 departments in the College of Arts and Sciences and the Schools of Education, Fine Arts, Journalism, Library and Information Science, Public and Environmental Affairs, the Kelley School of Business, and the Jacobs School of Music. The program does not grant an undergraduate major, but students can obtain an undergraduate minor in one of two tracks: a regular minor or a minor with a language certificate. The minor is awarded along with the bachelor's degree.

Minors in Russian and East European Studies

The minors indicate that students have achieved special competence in the Russian and East European area, successfully completing interdisciplinary area course work. Two minors, described below, are available. The first minor requires a distribution of area courses in three disciplinary groupings. The second minor, in addition to area courses, includes a language certificate. The second minor is particularly useful to those who are planning to undertake graduate study in the Russian or East European field. The minors are awarded to those who earn the bachelor's degree and complete the requirements below.

Academic Standing

Students must have a minimum grade point average of 3.000 (B) or the permission of the director to enter either undergraduate minor program.

Applications are available from the Russian and East European Institute (REEI) in Ballantine Hall 561.

Minor in Russian and East European Studies

Requirements

Students must complete 15 credit hours, selected in consultation with the REEI advisor, with a minimum average grade of B, in area-related courses, including a minimum of 3 credit hours each from history, social sciences, and literature/ culture distribution groups from the list below. Institute courses R302 and R303 can be used to meet the requirement for any of the distribution groups. 9 of these credit hours must be at the 300 level or above. Courses taken to satisfy the REEI minor requirements may also be used to meet College distribution requirements.

Minor in Russian and East European Studies with Language Certification

Requirements

Same course requirements as above; in addition, students must complete 6 credit hours beyond the first-year level (with at least a grade of B) of any one of the following languages: Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian, Czech, Estonian, Georgian, Hungarian, Macedonian, Polish, Romanian, Russian, Ukrainian, Yiddish, or another area language. Students may be exempted from the 6 credit hour requirement by demonstrating equivalent language knowledge with the approval of the REEI advisor.
