Online Russian Language Courses

Online Russian language courses (notated by the .61 suffix) are modeled after the in-person self-paced courses taught at the Ohio State main campus. In self-paced study, students work independently using specially-designed self-instructional materials, and proceed at their own speed. At the end of each unit, the student meets virtually through Carmen with a trained instructor for a homework check, conversation practice, and oral exam. These meetings help keep the student on track, and ensure that the student is progressing in his/her knowledge of Russian.

Students earn credit one semester hour at a time. As soon as the student passes a unit test at a grade of 80% or better, he/she is permitted to go on to the next unit. Unit grades accumulate to form the semester grade. A student may earn from 1 to 4 credit hours in a semester. Please see the schedule below for online language offerings.
