Duke in St. Petersburg summer program

Period: May 7 - June 28, 2008
Location: St. Petersburg University (St. Petersburg, Russia)
Deadline to apply: Feb. 6, 2008

The program

Students at all levels of Russian may participate. Each student will register for two Duke Russian language courses appropriate to the student's level. Language placement will be based on coursework and a placement examination.
Language requirement: all classes are taught in Russian. A minimum of two semesters of Russian at the college level, or equivalent, is therefore strongly suggested. However, depending on the number of participants, beginning students may be accepted.
Program itinerary: an excursion of several days to some area in the Russian Federation is being arranged, and will be announced later this fall. During the last week of the program, the group will be "on tour" in Moscow. In each of the Russian cities, the program will include visits to major sights as well as to cultural performances in the evenings (ballet, opera, theater, etc.). The program then returns to St. Petersburg for departure. Weekends and afternoons will be used for films and excursions to local sites and other cities near St. Petersburg.

How to apply

Summer program and scholarship applications as well as financial aid information will be accepted with a final deadline of February 6, 2008.

To apply, after completing the on-line application at the Office of Study Abroad website you must submit a completed 'Authorization and Consent' form, an official transcript of your university work, a personal statement of motivation, and a faculty letter of recommendation.
A visa is also required; the visa application requires that your passport remain valid for six months after the end date of the program.

Detailed information about the application procedure is available at the proper page in the Duke University website.
