As a student in SPREES, one will become proficient in the Russian language by taking a broad array of courses at Stetson University. Students will also spend a semester or summer in the Russian-speaking world, including places like Kyrgyzstan, Moldova and Ukraine—and Russia itself.
But SPREES is more than an academic program—it is students’ community and their career network at Stetson. The program’s house on campus contains a classroom and a library and hosts their active Russian Club. Tutoring, lectures, concerts, and student events take place in their foyer and gallery space, all over tea and cookies. Their Year in Food series has students making pelmeni, dumplings, and blini, pancakes, and their annual Farewell Party initiates students into Dobro Slovo, the national undergraduate honors society for Slavic Studies. Practice speaking Russian over tea, listen to a lecture by a faculty member on Ukraine, and don one of their signature SPREES t-shirts, too!
