Russia Banner


If there is one thing that remains constant in Russia, it is rapid change. The mental snapshots that students take home from Russia are very different from those they bring with them. Language learning happens in the classroom. Cultural insight happens in places like the home, theater, recital hall, cafeteria, and supermarket.

Yaroslavl, celebrating its millennium anniversary in 2010, has an unmistakable feeling of tradition and history, and its Kremlin walls give this city of 650,000 residents the feel of a small town. Onion-domed churches are at the end of seemingly every street, and its historic center is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Russia's first pro­fessional theater company was founded here, and its school of icon and fresco painting competed with the Novgorod and Pskov schools. Yaroslavl's vibrant social life gives it a youthful, energetic feel that blends well with its traditional customs.


Founded in 1908, Yaroslavl State Pedagogical University (YGPU) is one of the oldest institutions of higher education in Russia. In addition to twelve regular departments, the university maintains an institute of teacher training, a center for Russian language testing of foreign students, an astronomy society, university museum and botanical gardens.

The School in Russia program at YGPU is coordinated through the Department of International Relations. Instructors at the School in Russia program come from the Yaroslavl State Pedagogical University, as well from other institutions of higher education in the city.



*PLEASE NOTE*
Davidson students considering taking mainstream Russian university courses through this program during the fall term only must be certain that course requirements will not conflict with the start of the spring term at Davidson.
