Beginning Fall 2022, students wishing to pursue Russian as a major declare a major in Languages, Literatures & Cultures with a concentration in Russian.

The curriculum consists of 44 credit hours at the 2001 level or higher. Students are required to take 8 of those credit hours from CLTR 2100 and CLTR 2200. Find descriptions of these Languages, Literatures and Cultures core courses here.

36 credits must come from approved courses beyond RUSS 1003. Four of these 36 credits must be from RUSS 3101. No fewer than eight credits must be from 3000-level Russian courses. Students are encouraged to take either RUSS 1416 or RUSS 1613 and they may count up to 5 courses taught in English on Russian culture, history or literature toward the concentration (with advisor approval).

NOTE: For students who declared a major in Russian prior to Fall 2022, your requirements are determined by the bulletin year in which you entered the program. An archive of DU undergraduate bulletin publications can be found here.
