Russian is one of the most important languages of the Slav family of languages. It is one of the six working languages of the UNO and its organizations. It is perhaps the second biggest languages after English in terms of research and other academic sources that are produced in any language of the world.

Prospects For The Students Studying Russian: Russian language has become a language of functional application in all the 15 countries that comprised the former USSR and now part of the CIS. Russian is extensively used in the field of trade, scientific research and higher studies and international relations. In India new areas of work for Russian knowing students are emerging every day. The students can get admission to M.A. (Russian) course of the Department of Slavonic and Finno-Ugrian Studies with B.A./B.Sc. in any subject. Advanced Diploma (3-years part-time) course in Russian can be done simultaneously with the B.A. course at a college.
