Welcome! Willkommen! Privyet!

The German and Russian Studies Department offers BA and MA degrees in two cultures and languages of critical significance in the world today - German and Russian - and gives undergraduates the opportunity to study rich cultural traditions associated with several other languages of increasing importance in a global economy.

We provide classes in Japanese, Chinese, and Korean language and civilizations, Israeli culture, and the Arabic language. Our internationally recognized faculty pursues research in the wider arena of German and of Russian cultural studies, including literature, film, media studies, philosophy, and the history of science.
