Where to go
Russia, of course! At the International University in Moscow, the UC Education Abroad Program offers two programs of intensive language and culture specially designed for UC EAP. These programs are "set" courses taught in Russian and/or English, plus Russian language courses (the level depends on your proficiency at the time of your departure).
The course offerings vary from year to year based on the number of student participants and their academic focus. Consult with your Russian major or minor advisor to determine which would be the best level for you to take abroad.

In addition, The UC Education Abroad Program offers three special features to help you choose the right program.
- The Program Wizard can help you find possible programs of interest.
- The Coursefinder database includes descriptions of all courses taken by UC students while on EAP programs. Please note that it does not include all courses offered by the host university, only those that have been taken and submitted for approval by UC students.
- An up-to-date list of pre-approved EAP courses will soon be available.
What classes to take
All classes taken on the UC Education Abroad Program (EAP) are UC approved courses and count toward your 180 unit requirement for graduation; however, your major has the final authority to determine how the coursework is used to fulfill specific major requirements.
Courses are approved on a case by case basis. Before going abroad, students should discuss with the department advisor which EAP courses the department will approve for credit toward a major or minor. Students can often make changes to their study plan once they arrive in their country of choice, but should consult with the undergraduate staff advisor by e-mail first.
