Home to one of the foremost Slavic departments in the nation, the University of Michigan offers students the opportunity to study Russian with top scholars in the field. Our Russian Language Coordinator, Professor Snejana Tempest, oversees all Russian language courses offered here and provides training and guidance in Russian pedagogy to all UM Russian instructors.

Russian is a challenging language, and students are expected to spend 1.5 to 2 hours per day on homework. But unlike many other foreign languages, class sizes in the Slavic Department are usually small, giving students and instructors a chance to work closely together and get to know one another. First and second year Russian courses meet 5 hours a week, while third and fourth year classes meet 4 hours per week.
