Russian Minor

The Russian program provides students the opportunity to minor in Russian. The minor consists of 20 credits (beginning with Russian 503 Intermediate Russian I) where students develop language proficiency, a solid knowledge of grammar and pronunciation, and knowledge of Russian culture. Students with a Russian minor will have a sufficient command of the language to enhance their chosen field of study, and will have countless career opportunities, such as the public, private and nonprofit sectors, including government, education, journalism, law, communications, and business.

Students in the Russian minor program at UNH are strongly encouraged to study on the UNH Study Abroad Program in Russia. Students can earn credits toward the Russian minor as well as complete two Discovery categories on the program. Foreign language skills and cultural competencies will open doors for students that would not have been opened without the minor in Russian. 

The minor in Russian consists of 20 credits in Russian courses above RUSS 402 Elementary Russian II; it must include:

RUSS 503
