Courses of Instruction in Russian
Please note that Russian courses beyond RUS 202 are offered upon sufficient enrollments. If we are unable to offer such courses, we suggest the following options :
- Find another institution around Grand Rapids or the larger West Michigan area and take these classes and then transfer them to GVSU.
- Study abroad and transfer credits.
- Find a summer program in an intensive format and then transfer.
- Ask an instructor to work with you on an independent study (entirely bases on instructor’s decision).
