Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: College of Arts and Sciences

Requirements for Minors

  • At least 50% of the minor courses must be unduplicated, i.e., not used to simultaneously satisfy credit requirements of the major, core curriculum, or additional minors.
  • At least 50% of the minor courses must be completed in residence at UNH.
  • A minimum GPA of 2.0 is required in the minor (programs may set higher requirements).
  • A student may not declare a major and minor in the same program.

This minor combines courses in basic, intermediate, and advanced language, as well as translation, literature and the media, and area studies. If students begin at a level beyond RUSS 1102 , they can take additional courses from the area studies category to meet the 15-credit hour requirement.

Required Courses


Note:  Listed below is the sequence of courses for students with no previous knowledge of Russian.  Students who studied more than one year of Russian prior to matriculation at the University of New Haven or speak it at home will need to take the placement test in order to determine their level of proficiency.  If students place higher than RUSS 1102 , they will substitute the classes they outplaced with additional area study courses in order to meet the 15-hour requirement.

Note


Note: Special Topics in Russian or about Russian culture may satisfy the elective requirements upon approval of the Modern Language Coordinator.
