RUS w406 FIRST-YEAR RUSSIAN I will run the whole summer session, from June 6–August 16, 2019. It is part of a new three-semester online Russian language course developed at UT, called "Будем на связи." All three levels will be running simultaneously in the upcoming Fall and Spring semesters of 2019–2020.

This sequence is designed around ACTFL proficiency guidelines and aims to bring students to an Intermediate-level proficiency upon completion of the third semester. The classes are self-paced with weekly deadlines and class videoconferences, emphasizing both a strong student-centered community and instructor presence.

UT students can find out more about the online courses through the CREEES/Department of Slavic and Eurasian Studies' course pages or on the Registrar's website (Unique #83575).
Please contact CREEES/DSES Russian instructor Heather Rice <> with any specific questions about the course.

Launched for the Fall 2017 semester, this three-semester course is conducted entirely online. The course does not require traditional, printed texts, but instead utilizes new multi-media instructional content that was developed at The University of Texas by the Liberal Arts Instructional Technology Services (LAITS) and CREEES Russian language instructors. Students can participate from any location with a reliable high-speed internet connection by logging in at the scheduled class time and attending class virtually along with classmates. (Some courses require exams that must be taken in-person at an approved testing center.)
