The Russian program at Georgia Tech features rigorous content-based study of the matrices and fault lines which define Russian, Soviet and post-Soviet culture. Our strengths lie in the study of cultural memory – and its ideologized manipulations; systems of artistic signification and their historical development; Russian poetry, prose and song in their cultural contexts; and intersections of literature and science.
Working with us, you can achieve a high level of real-world linguistic and cultural competence (Our undergraduate majors have regularly completed our programs with official ACTFL OPI scores of Advanced High). You can also acquire deep cultural knowledge in specific focus areas of study, as well as a broad view of Russian culture and the issues that make it tick, and work with faculty to develop your own area of inquiry.
