Program Description:

Program OverviewCIEE St.Petersburg

Peter the Great’s vision of St. Petersburg as a “Window to the West” was captured by French and Italian architects with golden palaces, pastel-colored mansions, and landscaped parks, gardens, and canals. With World War II and Stalinist repression in its rearview mirror, St. Petersburg is the cultural capital and most westernized city of Russia, and easy to navigate by foot and public transportation. The city’s many nicknames include City of the Tsars, City of Three Revolutions, and Venice of the North, but we’re quite sure you’ll call it simply fabulous.

Program Focus

Bring your advanced Russian language skills to glorious St. Petersburg and master them!  Immerse yourself in Russian culture, history, art, and literature with fascinating coursework at CIEE St. Petersburg, while practicing with language partners to dramatically improve your Russian. Volunteer opportunities ensure students are well integrated into the local community to form lasting interpersonal connections. All courses are complemented with lectures, workshops, co-curricular activities, and excursions beyond the city to enhance classroom learning and provide intercultural understanding.
