St. Petersburg: Language and Society

Study Abroad

In St. Petersburg, you will find an exceptionally intensive and supportive study environment.

Semester terms offer a range of topical seminars delivered in English and on topics as diverse as the arts, finance, economics, and governance. An innovative capstone project rounds out the semester.

Summer and Semester terms include a broad cultural program that introduces you to the city and its legendary concentration of culture. You'll also meet many local peers and other foreign students. Being cultured and friendly is part of the proud local identity and English is relatively common, making the city easy to navigate no matter what your current level of Russian.

St. Petersburg is especially recommended for beginner students and for those on their first study abroad experience who would like extra support in advancing their language skills and jumping into local life.
