We recommend study abroad fall or spring of junior year. Generally, this semester will fulfill the advanced language requirement as well as at least one of the REES electives. If a student elects not to study abroad, they should take language, a REES elective, and any other electives to fulfill requirements in the College.

The Advanced Language course may be RUSS 301L, RUSS 302L, or RUSS 401L, or fulfilled by language study abroad.

8

We recommend taking language all four years to achieve proficiency. If a student elects not to take language every semester, the course can be replaced with an elective.
