Russian Language and Culture

The University of Jyväskylä has offered instruction in the Russian language since 1967. Today, as a part of the Department of Language and Communication Studies, we are  one of the most versatile Russian university units in Finland. In addition to linguistic studies, we emphasize the importance of studying the culture connected with the language.

As we do not offer elementary courses in Russian, students are expected to master basic Russian at the beginning of their studies. The language of instruction is Russian and/or Finnish.
