Off-campus Study Options

Reed has developed a number of associations to provide off-campus study opportunities for students interested in the Russian language and culture. Two of Reed's most popular programs for Russian majors and other students of the Russian language are based in St. Petersburg: at Herzen University and Smolny College. These programs are open to students in good academic standing with two years of college-level Russian. Each program provides coursework in Russian language. The Herzen program emphasizes the concentrated language study; the program at Smolny offers a full curriculum of liberal arts and sciences, taught in Russian.
