Russian language students have the opportunity to take a CU-approved semester-long or seven-week study abroad trip to Yerevan, Armenia for intensive Russian language and area studies coursework. These are very high quality programs run by American Councils, long a leader in study abroad in this region. Both trips include homestays, excursions 1 day per week, a conversation partner, volunteer opportunities, and small group instruction (3-5 students, 20 hours per week, placement by proficiency level). Financial aid is available through American Councils and you may use your CU Boulder financial aid for these programs.
