Study in Russia

USC offers many opportunities to study in Russia-an invaluable experience both for achieving language fluency through immersion and for greater cultural understanding of this fascinating country.  Students may participate in our International Summer Session, a six-week program in Russia, and may also spend a semester or year on the Council on International Educational Exchange (CIEE) program with St. Petersburg State University, administered through USC's Office of Overseas Studies.   Note: no previous knowledge of Russian is required for the Summer Session in Russia.  For more information click on these links:
