Russian Minor


The Department of Modern Languages strives to provide the best possible learning environment for its students, and for this reason we take very seriously the placement of students in courses that match their abilities. Each class in the sequence of our courses is designed so that students advance in reading, listening, writing, speaking, and cultural proficiency. In order to best serve each individual, the Department reserves the right to remove students from the rosters of classes that do not correspond to their proficiency levels. Students who have acquired advanced language skills abroad or at home must consult with Modern Languages staff in order to determine their appropriate entry point in our language sequence. Students who begin their coursework at advanced levels may qualify for retroactive credit in as many as four courses.  Click here for more information.

Program requirements


In order to minor in a language, you need to comply with the following rules:

  • First, declare your minor. You can do so when you start taking classes toward the minor, or later on.
  • To declare your minor, you need to fill out a “Add Minor” form in the Department of Modern Languages, 104 Eisenhower Hall.
  • You do not need to have an advisor to do your minor, simply follow the requirements relative the language you’ve chosen.
  • You must receive a “C” or better, or a minimum GPA of 2.5, in all courses counted toward a minor.
  • We strongly encourage students to Study Abroad. While university policy requires courses applied towards the minor to be taken in residence, we will accept appropriate coursework taken toward the minor; provided that at least two 400/500 level courses for the minor be taken on campus.
  • Retroactive Credit from KSU does apply toward the minor.
  • Classes for the minor cannot be taken Pass/Fail.
