Students are encouraged to spend time in Russia and the former Soviet Union to deepen their understanding of the region.

In addition to Wellesley's own Baikal course (RAST/ES 212), Georgia Wintersession program (RAST/ANTH 211), and Moscow Wintersession course (RUSS 203W/303W), we support study abroad with the C.V. Starr-Middlebury School in Russia and the Smolny College of Arts and Sciences (St. Petersburg) through Bard College.



Students interested in studying abroad should contact the Office of International Studies at Wellesley College for more information.
