As of fall, 2017 students can pursue a new, streamlined REEES major and minor with concentrations in Russian language, literature, and culture and Russian and Eastern European history, culture, and society. Guidelines for the new major and minor can be found at the following link: http://reees.uoregon.edu/undergraduate
