Russian Minor

As the relations between the United States and post- Soviet Russia continue to develop, students should no longer think of Russian Studies solely as a defensive tool (i.e., for employment with agencies such as CIA, NSA, FBI, etc.), but also as a potential instrument for promoting world peace through commerce (e.g., joint ventures) and communication (e.g., Peace Corps and teaching English in Russia). With these diverse ends in mind, the Minor in Russian allows students at CSULB to acquire a strategic language and a specialization in an important region and diverse culture. The Minor in Russian is 21 units and is available to any non-Russian major.
