The Russian language and culture program includes three years of Russian language study with particular emphasis on speaking and listening skills. To supplement this language and culture sequence, the College participates in an ongoing series of faculty and student exchanges with Petrozavodsk State University in Petrozavodsk, Duluth's sister city in Russia. In addition, American students of Russian may participate in a four-week summer Russian language camp in Petrozavodsk operated by Petrozavodsk State University, or they may want to help host Russian students who come to an English language camp at the College in alternate summers.
