Overall Experience
A student studying abroad with Truman State University / CCIS: Moscow - Study Abroad at the GRINT Center
While abroad, my language skills increased four fold and that made it completely worthwhile. Immersing yourself in a different culture is a life changing experience that really challenges your perspectives on your own country and culture. 10/10 would recommend. - Truman State University View Entire Review

Deeper insight into varying perspectives on complex international issues and the ways in which different cultures view and interact with one another. Absolutely worthwhile. - Truman State University View Entire Review
It was definitely worthwhile to better understand Russian culture and Russian language. Also, you will never understand Russian without using it in Russia, and this is one of the least expensive programs available to spend a semester in Russia. - Truman State University View Entire Review
It was the hardest thing I've ever done, but I did it. I learned so much and managed to interact with others in a completely different culture. My knowledge of Russian has deepened and I understand the people more. - Truman State University View Entire Review

About

This program also offered through TSU's partnership with CCIS.

GRINT Center for Education and Culture at Moscow University for the Humanities program seeks to involve students personally and actively with the Russian people and their language, history, art, and traditions.   Our Semester (Academic year) program includes: 

1.  Intensive Russian language course, which is taught at all levels, in a small (4-6 persons) groups – 15-18 hours weekly. All of our classes are designed to meet ACTFL standards with our teaching methodology. Classes typically last from 10.00 a.m. to 2.00 p.m. Monday through Friday. 

2. Lecture courses (students earn up to 15 undergraduate credits through the following courses) taught in English. The two lecture classes per semester from the list::  Russia Today General Survey of Russian History and Lecture Series Survey of Russian Literature (19th-20th centuries),  Survey of Russian Cultural History in Excursions. 

3. Internships  (are open to students at any level of Russian, but some internships do have language requirements). 

4. TORFL Exam Grint provides students the opportunity to take the optional TORFL exam – the State Examination on Russian Language for Foreigners - at the end of the course at no extra charge. In brief, this is a Russian style exam similar to the TOEFL. Previous students have found this to be a valuable thing to put on a resume. We agree, because it shows you your competency level and what it allows you to do in Russia! 

5. Culture and Social Activity. We take students outside of Moscow to see other parts of Russia. During the Fall semester, we take students to visit Saint Petersburg, Russia’s most European city. During the Spring semester, a mid-term 4 to 5 day tour will be taken to the city of Kazan, an often overlooked city by tourists with a very important history. - A five-day excursion to St. Petersburg or Kazan  in the middle of the semester is included in the program.
