Study Abroad

Slavic majors and minors may take advantage of some extraordinary opportunities for study abroad in Russia, Kazakhstan, Poland, and the Czech Republic.  Many of our students spend a summer, a semester, or even a full-year on study abroad (and, yes, you can still graduate in four years with a full year abroad). For students studying Russian, our affiliated programs are American Councils in Almaty, Moscow, St. Petersburg, or Vladimir and the Moscow Art Theatre Semester. In Prague, our affiliated program offers many options with foci on film, journalism, and Central European Studies. The film focus provides professional, practical training for students in film production, documentary, and acting for film. In Poland, several of our students have successfully petitioned to study at Jagiellonian University.  For advice and questions about study abroad, please contact the Slavic Study Abroad Adviser, Elisabeth Elliott, or Northwestern’s Study Abroad Office.

Some funding is available to support Slavic students studying abroad through the Irwin and Vivian M. Weil Travel and Language Study Grant for undergraduate and graduate studies.  To apply for this grant, students should complete and submit this application to the department, along with a budget and proof of acceptance into a language study program (or presentation at a conference).  Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
