Students walking through the academic quad

The Goucher College-Johns Hopkins University Cooperative Program in Russian Language and Literature was founded in 1970 and is the only program in the Baltimore area that offers advanced work in Russian. It is a rigorous, hands-on program with a high percentage of minors and majors at both campuses. Undergraduate and graduate students complete the program with a core of linguistic, literary, and cultural knowledge, but courses also can be tailored to fit students' needs. Russian Tables featuring Russian guests allows students to practice oral language skills. In addition, Student-volunteers help out with translation projects involving collections of avant-garde periodicals, and at performances/exhibits of local Russian artists/actors.
