Russian language and literature is the 299th most popular degree in America, with 395 students receiving their bachelors degree last year. It just beat out #300 Applied Horticulture and Horticultural Business Services, and narrowly lost to #298 Financial Mathematics.
The degree is offered at a total of 129 colleges across the nation, and is the 130th most widely offered degree. Given that russian language and literature is offered at 49% of the Top 100 Best Colleges in America, you can be sure this is a critical degree and the skillsets acquired are likely to last for a long time.
It is also worth noting that half of colleges offering russian language and literature are public making it a pretty accessible field.
The mid east produces the most russian language and literature graduates, largely led by CUNY Hunter College, while it’s the Big Ten Conference that leads conference totals. As far as states, New York ranks highest, with particular help from CUNY Hunter College and United States Military Academy.
All that being said, no individual school produces more russian language and literature graduates than Grossmont College, which graduated 39 students last year alone. Although size is critical, another important factor to consider is the program’s density (the percent of all students that study russian language and literature). More students studied russian language and literature as a percentage of total students at Grinnell College than any other college.
