Russian Placement: Student and Heritage Speakers

If you have previously studied Russian formally and want to be considered for a class above Russian 101, please contact Professor Merrill for placement questions and testing.

If you speak Russian at home and want to study the language at MSU, please contact Professor Merrill regarding course placement. Heritage speakers with some experience reading and writing Russian will usually begin their study of Russian with the one-credit section of Russian 491 (Special Topics) that is offered every fall semester.
