SUMMARY

Going to school for Russian Language and Literature is not only a valuable choice, but usually a critical first step for students coveting to pursue a career as a human rights activist, a russian teacher, or a russian diplomat. In fact, russian language and literature is an uncommon degree ranking as the 299th most popular area of study. Last academic year, there were 395 russian language and literature diplomas received. In-state tuition for russian language and literature at private institutions is, on average, 4.5 times more pricey than their public rivals.

With just 129 schools having programs for russian language and literature there could be limited options as to the institutions which will have a degree program for you. If you're hoping to immerse yourself with other russian language and literature undergraduates, consider institutions in New York which have more students admitted to russian language and literature than any other state. Zooming out, the top region to get a degree in russian language and literature is in the Mid East region with CUNY Hunter College, Pennsylvania State University-Main Campus, and University of Pennsylvania best representing the region. Interestingly, our selection for the top conference to study russian language and literature is the Big Ten Conference with Ohio State University-Main Campus, Pennsylvania State University-Main Campus, and University of Wisconsin-Madison representing the conference. That said, our choice for the best university for russian language and literature is Harvard University. You may also want to check out our list of best colleges.

The 'best' school is not necessarily the 'best' school for every student. There can be tons of perspectives to consider when choosing ​university. External stuff like campus amenities, transportation services, and food would refashion your decision on where to go to university. At Authority, we've examined the pros and cons for you. If, as an example, you want to know which russian language and literature college has the top campus, the answer is Harvard University. If, for example, you are primarily interested in which university boasts the best campus, we have a whole page dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through professor reviews, student reviews, government databases, and more to compare every major in an unbiased and informative way. Here you can explore our comprehensive list for the schools with the best student life and, from that list, our choice for the school with the best student life for russian language and literature is Georgetown University. Are you curious why? Keep reading to learn more about our top recommendations. Some of our conclusions will probably shock you.

If price is a significant deciding factor in your decisions, you might consider avoiding Vassar College. Vassar College is the most expensive university for russian language and literature, at least regarding out of state enrollment. We do have a page for the most expensive colleges that might put the price tag of Vassar College into perspective. For more context, you could care to know that russian language and literature is the 158th most expensive major in America, with an average expense of $33,100. On a broader scale, the most costly state for russian language and literature in the nation is North Carolina demonstrated with a cost of $55,880 at the main school in the state Duke University. Even more broadly, the most expensive region for russian language and literature is unfortunately unavailable due to missing data.

Our cheapest region for russian language and literature is the Rocky Mountains region which is represented by The University of Montana with a cost of $24,144 and Brigham Young University-Provo with a cost of $5,790. More optimistically, the most affordable college for russian language and literature is Brigham Young University-Provo. Authority.org's comprehensive list of the most affordable universities can be explored here.

In-state students can expect to pay about $11,300 for a degree in russian language and literature. That price inflates significantly to an average of $29,900 for an out-of-state public-school student. As such, you might be interested in our pick for the school constituting the best value for russian language and literature: Duke University. Here you will see our comprehensive list of the schools we see as being the best value overall. With that said, this section is based on out-of-state tuition costs. A discussion of value changes when in-state tuition costs are considered, but we do not know in which states any one student has residency.

Earnings for russian language and literature majors can cover a wide range, but within two-years of completing the major students will often earn around $58,300. While there can be much variation in salary; top positions can experience pay up to $132,500. Even right out of university, the minimum earning jobs within the russian language and literature field make $25,000, which is an alright wage. The highest earning graduates from russian language and literature studied at Duke University and if you are looking for colleges with all of the highest earning graduates, we have that too.

The general diversity of russian language and literature sits subpar, falling within only the 23rd percentile of all majors. The university with the most composite diversity for russian language and literature is Harvard University and here you can find our general list for the schools with the most diversity. The overall financial diversity of the Russian Language and Literature major stands only in the 20th percentile of all majors. Racial diversity is even less in the 15th percentile. White collegians compose the largest proportion, 77%, of scholars majoring in russian language and literature. Additionally, 50% of students pursuing a russian language and literature degree are women.

The median rating of russian language and literature professors is 4.15 stars, a rating which is 4% better than the median for every major; this is a good ranking. If you want the most popular russian language and literature professor in the nation, look no further than Nancy Tittler at Binghamton University. It might be a shock, but the best rated professors for russian language and literature according to students are found at University of Pittsburgh-Pittsburgh Campus. As we including data other than just rankings we find that the school with comprehensively the best professors for russian language and literature is Harvard University. You can find an explanation of our ever evolving ranking methodology of the best overall professors here, along with many of the top examples of professors in the U.S.

Finally, the hardest school to get into for russian language and literature is Harvard University. While we do not necessarily see the value in it, we do have a general list of the hardest colleges to get into. That being said, here at Authority we do hope you believe that approaching higher education from examples primarily formed from superlatives can create problems. We hope you explore our other pages on individual colleges and peruse a few of our helpful background 'blog posts' on essential details to think about as your university search develops.
