Program Description:
USF in Russia

May 12-June 12, 2018


Program Description


St. Basil's CathedralParticipate in a four-week intensive language program located in the heart of Moscow, Russia.  This USF faculty-led program is hosted at Moscow State University, top-rated university located in Russia's cultural and artistic capital.   The program has been designed to accelerate and deepen students' knowledge of the Russian language, and appreciation of the rich culture and history of the country. 

Each week students will receive approximately 20 hours of beginning, intermediate or advanced Russian language instruction taught by native speakers for a total of 3-4 language credits at the appropriate level as well as the 3 credit Russian Culture and Civilization course. Students will visit key historical and cultural sites of St. Petersburg, Vladimir and Suzdal. 


Moscow is the capital of the Russian Federation, and with a population of over 10,000,000 is Europe's largest metropolitan area.  In the post-Soviet era, Moscow has experienced a rebirth -- pre-revolutionary architecture has been restored and cleaned; new shopping centers and restaurants and the wealth from oil sales have catapulted Moscow into the 21st century and out of the grey and cold austerity of Soviet times.  Moscow is filled with museums, cafes, theaters, parks, restaurants, historical sites such as the Kremlin, Red Square and numerous Russian Orthodox monasteries and churches.

Host Institution

Moscow State University was established in 1755, and is considered by many to be the leading university in the former Soviet Union.  The courses will be taught through MSU's Philological faculty.

Who Can Participate

The program is open to all students, but those with at least one semester of Russian language study will benefit most.  First priority is given to USF students, but students from other universities may also participate.

The program is limited to 15 students.
