The Russian language program has received a one-year trial extension through the coming 2013-2014 Academic Year.  This extension is to assess whether or not there is enough student demand to warrant continuing the program.

Please enroll and spread the word about the Russian language program at De Anza College to make it a strong, vital, and continuing part of our World Language offerings.  Students "vote" with their enrollment!

Russian is one of many world languages taught at De Anza. We provide a wide range of course levels to meet the needs of our students, including introductory and/or elementary sequences for all foreign languages offered, and intermediate and advanced courses for some.

If you have studied a language at another institution, to accurately assess your past instruction (and support your success in further Russian language study) we require a World Languages Prerequisite Clearance to register in RUSS 2 or higher. If you would like to reach an instructor, see our Russian department faculty list.

Please follow these general rules to decide which course level is best for you.

  • One year of high school language is equal to one quarter of De Anza language. For example, if you took Russian 1 & 2 in high school, you can continue with Russian 3 at De Anza.
  • Review the Russian course catalog and current schedule of classes (see links on left menu).
  • See our Intercultural/International Studies Division Frequently Ask Questions page for more information about taking a language class at De Anza.
