The Slavic Department is happy to announce a unique and exciting 2-unit Spring course “The Trans-Siberian Experience”, which is listed in the Spring schedule as
SLL 499 – Special Topics.
This is a study-tour with 7 sessions on campus followed (during Spring break) by a tour to Moscow and then – by Trans-Siberian train – to Irkutsk and Lake Baikal-
the deepest fresh-water lake in the world.
The course introduces students to the evolution of historic and modern Russia, through observation of, and interaction with, people and places along Trans-Siberian road.
Students will be responsible for cost of a ticket to Moscow and food in Russia (around $1300.00 total)
Knowledge of Russian is not required.
