Studying Russian, the fifth most widely spoken language in the world, becomes especially important at the present time when Russia is becoming an essential partner in global politics, economy, and issues of the environment. By developing students’ language skills and expanding their knowledge of Russian culture and society, the Russian Studies program strives to make students active participants in the multicultural, global community. The Russian Studies Faculty Scholarship collection contains records filtered by program from Faculty Books, Faculty Conference Papers and Presentations, Faculty Contributions to Books, Faculty Journal Articles, and Other Faculty Research and Publications. The Russian Studies Student Scholarship collection contains records filtered by program from the Honors Thesis and Masters Thesis collections.

The main Russian Studies site includes a program description, faculty and staff contact information, and major and minor requirements. Past versions of the program website are archived by the Special Collections and University Archives (SCUA) using the Archive-It web archiving services; capture began in 2015. Finding aids for program records are also available online.
