The Russian-Eurasian Lynk: Classroom to Career

Russian language: highway to your international career

Russia's influence extends across the Eurasian continent alongside the expanding communication networks connecting the Far and Middle East with Europe. Russian is a vital means of communication in Central Asian and Caucasian states, as well as in Belarus and Moldova. Employment opportunities for students trained in Russian and Eurasian studies include work in business and international trade, diplomacy, journalism, environmental protection, non-governmental and charitable organizations, and peace and security. Alumnae can be found in a wide variety of positions — from U.S. consulates and financial institutions to NGOs and the oil fields of Siberia.
