Spend your semester living and learning in Estonia’s capital and largest city: Tallinn! The Russian Language & European Studies program is designed to give you a deeper understanding of the cultural and historical similarities and differences between Russian cultures and their native cultures while improving your Russian language skills through classroom, lab, and experiential coursework.
When class is in session, you’ll study at Tallinn University where you’ll learn about Estonian-Russian heritage communities, Estonian/Baltic perspectives of concepts like “democracy” and “freedom,” and interpret performing arts through visits to museums, galleries, and performance spaces. Outside the classroom, you’ll have every opportunity to enjoy Tallinn’s booming tech scene, cobblestone streets, comfortable cafés, lovely shops, beautiful cathedrals, historic defensive towers, and hilltop castles.
