Russian Studies Program uri icon

The Russian Studies Program is interdisciplinary and housed in the Thomas Harriot College of Arts and Sciences (HCAS). The Program draws its principle faculty from the HCAS departments of Foreign Languages and Literatures, History, Political Science, Economics, and International Studies. Faculty from ECU professional schools such as Art and Design, Theatre and Dance, Music, and Communication, as well as the ECU Honors College also participate in the Russian Studies program. Our innovative interdisciplinary approach designed for the 21st century global economy integrates Russian language with Russian area studies in Humanities, Social Sciences and Fine Arts, making our program distinctive in the UNC-system and eastern U.S.
