The Russian Federation is a huge and varied country with a long and complex history, unequaled cultural treasures (literature, ballet, folklore, cuisine) and great natural beauty. Study of Russian at Swarthmore offers entry to this culture and place, whose world importance is evolving and continuing over time. The Russian language is particularly satisfying to anyone who loves beautiful and intricate systems, making its study a pleasure on its own terms.
