Lending Library

The CREEES Outreach Program maintains a library of materials specifically for use by K-12 educators in their classrooms. Here you will find a list of books, videos and other resources for learning and teaching about Russia, Eastern Europe and Eurasia.

Credit by Examination

In some cases, students may receive credit for language courses taken in high school, or may "place out" of a course by showing a certain level of proficiency. Some languages have standardized tests available; some require a department-administered exam (DAE).  Further details are determined by the language you are studying and the level of proficiency you have attained. 

To find out more about this process:

  1. Contact your academic advisor to discuss your language requirements.
  2. Contact the Student Development Specialist at the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) (formerly the Measurement and Evaluation Center) to determine if a test is available. 
  3. An upper-level course may require a department-administered exam – the CTL will tell you which forms are required and can help you make special arrangements with the Department of Slavic and Eurasian Studies.
