Otherwise identical to the REEI minor (available to any student with an interest in Russian and Eastern European studies), this minor has the added benefit of awarding you a language certificate.
Language certification requires 6 credit hours beyond the 1st year level of an approved language, or demonstrated equivalent knowledge. You must earn at least a B in your language courses, which are in addition to the minor’s required 15 credit hours in Russia/East European area-related coursework.
Your 15 credit hours are selected from each of the following distributions, with at least 3 credit hours from each category:
- Social Science
- Literature and Culture
At least 9 credit hours in the minor must be at the 300 level or above. The REEI advisor can help you select these classes. Courses must be passed with a minimum of a B average and be area-related.
