Undergraduate Licence: Russian
The undergraduate Licence programme in Russian applies both to those students who are complete beginners, and to those students who began learning Russian at secondary school.
Practice-based objectives include written and oral expression, written and oral comprehension, translation in both directions (French into Russian and Russian into French).
Theory-based objectives include the study of the contemporary language, literature, history and society in Russia and the Slavic states of Eastern Europe.
The particular assets of this programme are:
- the enriched cultural relations between France and Russia;
- a European Union that is opened out towards Eastern Europe, and renewed dialogues between France and Central Europe, and the Balkans;
- an awareness of Russia’s important position in contemporary global relations.
Students are encouraged to spend one or two semesters studying abroad within one of our partner universities. Possible destinations include Moscow, St Petersburg, Yekaterinburg, Krasnodar in Russia; Wroclaw and Szczecin in Poland; Riga in Latvia, and Kharkiv, a Russian-speaking city in Ukraine.
