The Capstone Year (Final Year)

On top of reaching proficiency goals and gaining cultural fluency, students will have the opportunity to make meaningful connections and develop professional relationships with their peers across the globe. Imagine being an IU history major who gets to take a 300-level history course taught in Russian. Now, imagine getting to take this course with students from Russia and Central Asia as well as American students from different Russian Flagships across the U.S., including:

  • Bryn Mawr College
  • Portland State University
  • University of California Los Angeles
  • University of Georgia
  • University of Wisconsin-Madison

By the time students return to IU they will have achieved level 3 proficiency, become experts in Russian culture, successfully completed an internship, and joined a global network of like-minded young professionals.

Take a look at what students from these universities have to say about the Russian Capstone Year Abroad:
