The 2019 STARTALK UTA Intensive Russian Program (funded by NSA), Let’s Travel to Russia, is a four-week (120 instructional hours) program for 11th-12th graders and undergraduate students with no prior knowledge of Russian, or at a low novice level.

All program activities, including tuition, textbooks, other learning materials, and lunches, are free to students.

Upon successful completion of the program, students wishing to continue their Russian studies at UTA will be eligible to earn up to eight university credit hours through the university placement test. This test will incur no personal expense on the part of the student. This gives students the opportunity to become part of the UTA language learning community.

Admission preference will be given to applicants with high academic performance and those who plan to continue Russian studies after the program.
