Summer Russian and Ukrainian Language Study through Harvard University

June 20

Students are able to take courses remotely this summer and won’t have to incur the added costs of travel, room and board, and other expenses.

For students at the advanced level, Harvard is offering our course on Russian Media and Popular Culture. For students just getting started in Russian, Harvard offers an introductory course, Intensive Elementary Russian.

Drawing on the programming for the annual summer institute of the Harvard Ukrainian Research Institute (https://huri.harvard.edu/), Harvard is offering two courses in Ukrainian language. There is a regular intensive four-skills course, Intensive Elementary Ukrainian, offered online as well as an in-person course geared towards those who may already know or be fluent in another Slavic language who require Ukrainian primarily for reading knowledge and research (Note: UKRN S-G is offered in person on the Harvard Campus in Cambridge, MA; all other courses are offered online over Zoom).

RUSS S-Aab Intensive Elementary Russian


RUSS S-112 Russian Media and Popular Culture


UKRN S-Aab Intensive Elementary Ukrainian

These online courses are perfect opportunities for students looking to begin their study of Russian or Ukrainian or to continue advanced study of Russian without needing to be in residence for a program and deal with costly room and board expenses.

Courses run 7 weeks, June 24-August 9, 2024

Registration is open now through June 20 (final day to register) and seats are filling quickly. Open to any college students or continuing education adults. Interested high school students are also eligible to apply for the course by April 10, 2024.
