Intermediate and Advanced Proficiency Certificates in Russian

Many changes have occurred in what was formerly the USSR over the past few years. This upheaval has seen a march toward certain freedoms in Russian society which would have formerly seemed unthinkable. Canadians in the business and tourist industries are realizing more and more that there is a growing need for people trained in Russian studies to obtain more access to the huge East European market.

At UFV we offer courses in the Russian language which has now become the second language of science and is itself exciting to study. It has an almost phonetic alphabet and a logical structure. Russian literature is amongst the world’s richest and most fascinating to read; our program also offers you Russian literature in English translation.

Program Structure

PROGRAM LENGTH

The Intermediate Proficiency Certificate in Russian consists of the successful completion of 12 credits in Russian at the 100 and 200-level. The Advanced Proficiency Certificate in Russian consists of the successful completion of 20 credits in Russian, including 12 credits at the 100 and 200-level and 8 credits at the 300-level. The proficiency certificates can be completed simultaneously to an additional program (i.e. Bachelor of Arts degree) or on their own. If you already have the 101/102 component (i.e. Grade 12 level), you can have the first-year requirement waived.

GRADUATION PROCESS FOR PROFICIENCY CERTIFICATES

Students in any UFV program who meet the stated requirements of any proficiency certificate may apply for the certificate by completing a graduation application, available at the Office of the Registrar, by April 1 (all requirements must be met by April 30).
