Why Study Russian at UAA?
Russia is Alaska’s neighbor, and opportunities to use Russian and to learn about Russian culture abound at UAA. Many students from Russia study at UAA, and you can hear Russian being spoken on a daily basis. Moreover, the Russian community in Anchorage is vibrant and active. The Anchorage School District boasts the first ever Russian language immersion program in an American elementary school, and UAA, Anchorage, and the State of Alaska maintain important partnerships with Russian universities and organizations, especially in the Russian Far East. Highly qualified faculty members across the university teach courses with a Russia focus.
