Independent Minds, Working Together

Success After Wooster

Russian Studies majors pursue a wide range of careers. Some go on to graduate school, ultimately to teach at the university or secondary school level, others go to law school or study library science. Several have found work with not-for-profit organizations.

Several graduates, like Daniel Borsody '01 and Jonathan Hayes '02, chose to serve in the Peace Corps in the former Soviet Union. Recently, Jesse Menefee '04 (double major with English) was awarded a Fulbright Research Fellowship for a year's study of Russian literature in St. Petersburg before pursuing a Ph.D. in that field at Princeton.

Arielle Neu ('12) recently received a Fulbright fellowship to teach in southeastern Siberia. Follow Arielle on her blog: Part of That World: an ETA in Ulan-Ude.
