Advising

Schedule an Appointment:

Please call or email for an appointment.

Our director of undergraduate studies (DUS) can assist you with:

  • declaring a major or minor program
  • choosing your courses
  • planning for a career
  • pursuing opportunities to study, volunteer, or work abroad

Majors should meet with the DUS at least once a year. If you are a junior or a senior, it is particularly important for you to be on track to graduate, so contact the DUS to ensure that no requirements have been overlooked.

Double Majors

Students choose a double major because it offers a competitive advantage in the job market and in applications to graduate and professional schools. Over half of our majors have a second (or even a third) major. With good planning, it is possible to complete both a Russian degree and another major in just four years.

Not in CLA?

Students in other colleges may declare a Russian major without seeking admission to the College of Liberal Arts (CLA). If they want to receive a dual degree, they must to be admitted to CLA.
