Summer Language Program in Russian

View program Web site

Since 1983 the Center for Language Studies (CLS) at Beloit College has offered students a unique opportunity to achieve a year's worth of college-level language training in just eight weeks. Excellent faculty, small class sizes that allow for individual attention, and twenty-six hours of classroom instruction per week in a beautiful residential environment provide an immersive approach to learning that encourages students to focus exclusively on the target language and culture.
For graduate students who receive FLAS funding, the Center for Language Studies will provide an additional grant which will cover the remaining portion of tuition.
