Welcome to the Department of Slavic Languages!

Georgetown University’s Department of Slavic Languages is committed to fostering cross-cultural understanding in the global community by educating students who are linguistically and culturally competent users of Russian, Polish and Ukrainian. Focusing on the integration of language into the humanities and social sciences, the Department prepares students to meet the challenges of an increasingly complex and interdependent world.

The Department provides content-based instruction in Russian, Ukrainian and Polish and a wide variety of courses in Russian literature, culture and linguistics, taught both in Russian and in English. We offer an undergraduate major in Russian and two different minors, contribute to undergraduate general education in the humanities and the social sciences, anchor the literature/culture concentration for the M.A. degree in Russian Area Studies, and welcome all other students interested in our courses.
