The department teaches the languages, literatures, and cultures of the Slavic nations and of Armenia. The Russian language is spoken by more people than any other language except Chinese and English; in addition there are some one hundred and fifty million speakers of Czech, Polish, Serbo-Croatian, and Ukrainian. These are vehicles of some of the world's great cultures and are of increasing importance as a key to communication in trade and technology. Courses are offered in Slavic languages, literatures, and cultures, Slavic linguistics, and Armenian. A concentration is offered in Russian, and the undergraduate curriculum is designed primarily to provide competence in Russian and a knowledge of Russian literature and civilization.

The curriculum provides the language training prerequisite to specialization in a variety of careers (e.g. government, diplomacy, international trade, teaching), and offers an enriching cultural and linguistic background to non-concentrators, especially those interested in the ethnic heritage of the Slavic peoples.
