The Minor consists of seven (7) courses in Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies, at least four (4) of which must be upper division. In addition, there must be at least one course each from two of the three following areas: Literature, History, and Social Science. No more than three of the seven courses may be language courses. Knowledge of the language is not a requirement for the minor but is strongly recommended. 

Students declaring a REEES minor should use minor code RU26 for Russian, East European, & Eurasian Studies; the old code, RU25 for Russian & Soviet Studies, is being phased out and is no longer administratively supported.
