It is strongly recommended that StDev 317, a 2-credit-hour course, be taken at the end of the sophomore year or the beginning of the junior year. Because liberal arts degrees provide preparation in a variety of useful fields rather than a single career track, this course is recommended to help liberal arts students focus on specific educational and occupational goals and to identify the career options or educational opportunities available to them. The course will introduce them to the resources needed for accessing information about graduate schools, internships, careers, and career development. Students will learn basic employment strategies, including the steps necessary for obtaining employment related to their own specialty.

Important Note for Returned Russian-Speaking Missionaries:

(1) Register for third-year Russian classes. RUSS 330 is recommended.

(2) RUSS 202 will be waived as a requirement for Russian majors and should not be taken except when remedial work is necessary and permission is obtained from the section leaders.

(3) Credit for RUSS 101, 102, 201, and 211 is available through a test given as part of RUSS 330.

(4) Returned missionaries must complete RUSS 330 and talk with the Russian section head before declaring a major.
