Description In addition to offering the only full undergraduate and graduate programs (including MA and PhD) in Quebec, Russian and Slavic Studies continues to attract one of the largest student enrollments in North America. We are proud to have approximately twenty-five students graduate each year in the undergraduate programs, many of whom have received credit for courses taken in Russia during their programs. Due to expanding global links - both business and institutional - many opportunities are open to students with qualifications in Russian studies. Students may be interested in the organization of human society, comparative literature, linguistics -- Russian studies are highly relevant to all of these. Please see the menu at the left for more information.
