Hello, future Badgers! We’re so glad that you’re interested in the Russian Flagship Program! This federally funded program is designed to turbo-charge your language learning and set you on the path to becoming a global professional:
How to Get Started
- If you’ve never studied Russian, enroll in Slavic 101: First Semester Russian in Fall 2021.
- If you have previous experience studying Russian, contact Dr. Anna Tumarkin, associate director, to schedule a placement test so that you can enroll in the appropriate level of Russian.
- Explore the program’s website to familiarize yourself with program admissions policies, academic requirements, scholarships, and more.
- Make an appointment with an advisor to ask questions or create an individualized study plan for completing the program alongside the major(s) of your choice.
- Come to a Fall 2021 information session and plan to apply for admission by November 15 (to begin in Spring 2022) or March 15 (to begin in Summer or Fall 2022).
- Reach out to a student ambassador to learn more about the program from a peer’s perspective.
Russian is challenging to learn, and this is a challenging program, but it comes with everything you need, and you will learn faster than you might think possible - all you need to supply is motivation and commitment!Kate Sandy, Current Student
