About the Russian Program
Since 1950, the Summer Language Workshop has enabled thousands of students and professionals to intensively study the Russian language on the Indiana University campus in Bloomington, Indiana. Alumni have gone on to pursue careers in the fields of academic research, economic development, human rights, diplomacy, national security, cultural exchange, scientific advancement, and other global issues.
Workshop participants range from beginners with no prior experience in Russian to students with advanced proficiency coming to improve their skills. Placement exams are used to ensure that participants with prior experience in Russian are placed into the level best suited to advance their proficiency.
