Boston College offers an undergraduate minor in East European Studies. Administered by the Department of Slavic and Eastern Languages and Literatures, the program encompasses faculty and courses from across the University and spans the entire border of “western” Europe, from Russia, through central Europe, to southeastern Europe (the Balkans), the Caucasus, and Siberia.

Students can shape the East European Studies minor to fit usefully with their academic major and with their plans for work or advanced study. The Program prepares students for careers in diplomacy, journalism, law, military, business, government, social service, as well as graduate academic or professional study.

Students who complete the minor will work toward proficiency in a Slavic and/or East European language related to the region and attain valuable knowledge, experience and professional skills.
