Nicholas Fedosenko

Class of 2016, Major: Russian language, literature, and culture / Minor: history; currently a PhD student at UCLA.

"I entered University of Illinois’s Slavic program without any knowledge of Russian or other Slavic languages. Although I came from a Russian-Ukrainian background, I did not have the opportunity to learn either of the languages which is why I chose to major in Russian language, literature, and culture. The program at University of Illinois provides an excellent background to the field. Furthermore, the department is very helpful with regards to finding opportunities to study abroad in Russia. The Russian, East European, and Eurasian Center hosts events which range from lectures by scholars to musical performances. Entering UCLA as a graduate student, I had a firm foundation in Russian literature from my studies at Illinois. This is where Illinois’s Slavic department shines. In addition to a course dedicated to War and Peace, I was able to enroll in classes on Nikolai Gogol and Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. My own interest in Russian dissident and émigré literature emerged from the coursework which I took at Illinois."
