Slavic’s got it all!  Many of our courses satisfy distribution requirements such as Historical Studies (Area IV), Ethics and Values (Area V), and Literature and Fine Arts (Area VI). 

Slavic majors and minors have gone on to successful careers in the State Department, Department of Defense, law, foreign relations and medicine; many have been accepted to renowned graduate programs.
