RSP strives to give students a broad learning experience in the largest nation in the world. RSP students are exposed to the depth and diversity of Russian culture through encounters with the Federation’s three largest cities: Moscow, St. Petersburg and Nizhnii Novgorod. The majority of the semester is spent in Nizhnii Novgorod, where students complete intensive language instruction, participate in service-learning, and live with a Russian family. Additionally, the students study in Moscow, the heart of both medieval and modern Russia, and the intriguing city of St. Petersburg, the Russian “window to the West.” Students are offered three seminar courses: History and Sociology of Religion in Russia; Russian Literature and History; and Russia in Transition, and receive instruction in the Russian language. Students earn 16 semester hours of credit.
