The Department of German and Russian provides superior language instruction from a faculty that consistently ranks among the best in the University; offers a wide range of courses, including but not limited to literature; and fosters a community of learning, in which students benefit from small classes and ample extracurricular opportunities. Proficiency in German or Russian allows students to engage with some of the greatest cultural traditions in the world while also gaining the skills necessary for entry into such fields as international business, economics, and law.
Russian Major Kellie Travis in the News!
“To be able to read some of the very famous poems by Alexander Pushkin and other Russian poets and writers—and speak about it in Russian—is very challenging, but also very rewarding,” said Kellie Travis ’14, a Russian major in the College of Arts and Letters.
Russian majors at Notre Dame take a full complement of courses covering the language, literature, and culture of Russia. As a student in the Russian Honors track, Travis completed a senior thesis focusing on the Soviet Gulag forced labor camps, specifically methods of resistance in the camps. “It’s definitely a very sad moment in their history," she said, "but it’s also a story that needs to be told.”
After graduation, Travis was accepted into the law school at Vanderbilt University. She plans to become an international lawyer. “Studying Russian for four years has been an absolutely fascinating experience,” said Travis. “I wouldn’t take it back for a second.”
