Students minoring in Russian will take a minimum of six courses numbered RUSS 1501 Intermediate Russian I and higher, to be selected in consultation with the assigned departmental Russian minor adviser.
A course of study in Russian normally includes:
|RUSS 1501||Intermediate Russian I||3|
|RUSS 1502||Intermediate Russian II||3|
|RUSS 2001||Russian Language and Literature||3|
|Select two additional 2000-level courses||8|
|Select at least one 3000-level elective course||4|
Up to one course in translation may be applied toward the minor if the readings and assignments are done in Russian.
All courses counting towards the core language requirement and the major or the minor in a modern foreign language, literature and culture must be taken for credit and a letter grade. When AP or IB credits are awarded as equivalent to the 1502 level in a language, these credits will be applied toward the core language requirement and, as elective credits, toward graduation, but they will not be applied toward the major or the minor in that language.
Students interested in the Russian minor are strongly encouraged to study in Russia for at least one semester. A maximum of two courses for the Russian minor may be taken abroad. Students who opt to apply study abroad credits toward their minor must have these courses approved by the Russian minor adviser prior to their going abroad.
The minor in Russian is available at Fordham College at Rose Hill and Fordham College at Lincoln Center. Students in Fordham School of Professional and Continuing Studies may minor in Russian only if their schedules are sufficiently flexible to permit them to take day courses at the Lincoln Center campus. All Russian courses are offered only at Lincoln Center.
