Unique semester and year-long options allow students to choose the program that is right for them. In partnership with the UW-Madison, the American Council of Teachers of Russian (ACTR), a non-profit educational association and academic exchange organization, offers the opportunity to study the Russian language and area studies in Moscow, St. Petersburg, or Vladimir for a semester or year and in Moscow or St. Petersburg for the summer. The programs, which are designed to maximize linguistic and cultural immersion into Russian society, emphasize the development of practical speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills as well as offering courses on contemporary Russian society and culture.

Students can experience the profound economic and political changes taking place in Russia firsthand. The largest of the Commonwealth of Independent States, Russia reaches from Europe to Asia. In Moscow, the capital city, discover the 850 year history of the city. St. Petersburg is largely regarded as Russia's cultural center. Vladimir, a city with 360,000 inhabitants, located south of Moscow, has all the amenities of a small city.
