This study abroad program introduces students to the culture and history of Russia. Alaina Lemon, associate professor of anthropology at the University of Michigan, will direct the course and lead the study tour. No pre-requisite courses are required. Lectures will be given by leading professors at the Russian State University for the Humanities, and will include culture, fine arts, history, political science, and sociology. Guided tours to some of Moscow's most famous sites will complement this interdisciplinary set of lectures. Participants will also have several opportunities to meet and interact with students from Russian State University for the Humanities. A detailed trip itinerary including lecture titles and tour destinations will be posted in December.

Unlike other U-M study abroad opportunities to Russia this study tour has no language requirements. However, students with no knowledge of Russian are encouraged to use the "Pimsleur" or "Ultimate Russian" learning kits available from the Language Resource Center prior to their departure. Professor Lemon is fluent in Russian and will accompany students to tour organized events; students will also have some free time to shop and site-see on their own. All students will depart from Detroit Metropolitan Airport on the same flight and return from Moscow as a group. The Center for Russian and East European Studies (CREES) will make travel arrangements for the group, and Professor Alaina Lemon will travel with the students.

Students will be required to keep a journal while in Moscow. Upon return, students will write an essay incorporating elements of the lectures, readings, and their experiences with people and places in Moscow. The essay will serve as the primary basis for evaluating performance, along with full participation in all lectures and excursions.
