Courses in Russian and East European Studies

We use two rubrics to designate our courses in Russian:

  • RUSS (short for Russian) is used for courses in the Russian language
  • REES (short for Russian and East European Studies) is used for courses taught in English that deal with Russian and eastern European culture, literature, and languages
