Modern Languages and Linguistics, Russian Certificate

The Certificate in Russian is intended for those students who want to explore another part of the world as part of their overall education but who do not have the time to complete a traditional minor. In addition to the required language credits, MLL-rubric classes conducted in English offer the possibility of investigating the target cultures in some detail without waiting to attain advanced language competency. The certificate cannot be combined with an MLL major or minor. Students desiring to complete an MLL certificate in Russian must have a designated advisor and select courses with the approval of that advisor.

Students must complete all of the following in the same language/culture area with a grade of “B” or higher.

NOTE: At least three courses must be taken at UMBC in order to complete the certificate.

3 credits:

Choose as an elective any RUSS course at the 300- or 400-level. One 300- or 400-level cognate course in another discipline (such as POLI 475, HIST 485, or HIST 486) may be used as a substitute for the RUSS elective, with the approval of the student’s academic advisor.
