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

In the 15-16 academic year, RAST 211 will be hosted by Williams College and open to Wellesley students.  See here for details: 2016 January in the Republic of Georgia.

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.
