About

Siberian Studies looks at a unique environment and the problems it faces today. Students will explore Siberia's history from its first colonization, to its Soviet industrialization, to its current transition to a market economy. Students also critically consider Russian and international theories on how to understand and manage the impact of these events in addition to learning the Russian vocabulary and cultural norms related to environmental issues.

This innovative course also allows students to opt for additional hands-on experience by serving an internship with a local environmental NGO, museum, or other organization. Students with advanced Russian skills can gain more language practice, cultural integration, or non-language credits by joining mainstream classes attended by Russians. Students staying for a second semester can, for their second semester, choose to enrol in more mainstream courses and continue their internship, or can elect to conduct a research project.

The environment is a local and global issue. Tomorrow's environmental professionals will need to cross borders and communicate with a wide range of people to achieve their goals. This program is geared to help train those professionals today.
