Language Program

The University of Oregon offers four years of Russian language study, as well as such specialized courses as spoken Russian 121 and 221 and Russian 309, “Russian Through Theater.” Advanced language courses focus on learning Russian through film and television, reading print media, and other methods. Dr. Yelaina Kripkov is our Russian Language Coordinator and is responsible for administering the Russian language program. If you have any questions about Russian language at the UO, please contact Dr. Kripkov at

The language program is bolstered by the Russian Club, which puts on parties and events throughout the year. The program also participates in the annual FLIS (Foreign Language and International Studies) Day at Yamada Language Center, which introduces prospective undergraduate students to the many possibilities of studying language at the University. Yamada offers a venue for the study of less commonly taught languages, as well as resources for the study of languages taught at the University, and is very technologically oriented.
