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.
