Summer Programs: Russia

An intensive “at–home–and–abroad” eight week long course featuring language study at either second–year, third–year, or advanced levels of Russian. The first three weeks are offered at Yale in New Haven, CT; the remaining five weeks and one day are offered by Yale faculty in St. Petersburg, the former imperial capital of Russia, during the most enchanting time of the year, the White Nights season. Numerous cultural activities—museums, exhibitions, theater, ballet, opera, concerts and shows, as well as a three day trip to Moscow, are an integral part of the program.
