Summer Russian Program at Beloit College, Deadline: Rolling

Since 1983 the Center for Language Studies (CLS) at Beloit
College has offered students a unique opportunity to achieve a
year’s worth of college-level language training in just eight
weeks. Excellent faculty, small class sizes that allow for
individual attention, and twenty-six hours of classroom
instruction per week in a beautiful residential environment
provide an immersive approach to learning that encourages
students to focus exclusively on the target language and culture.

For graduate students who receive FLAS funding, the Center for
Language Studies will provide an additional grant which will
cover the remaining portion of tuition.

Detailed information on our programs can be found at

The eight week Russian program begins June 12, 2010. For information on how to apply, please visit:
