*SLAV courses discuss broad themes in the literatures and cultures of Russia and Eastern Europe. At the 100-500 level they are generally taught in English. Many courses at that level fulfill the Learning Outcomes of the KU CORE. Many of the courses at the 500 level do not have specific Slavic Department prerequisites, and can be taken by Juniors and Seniors from a variety of departments.

At the 600 level, courses may be taught in English or the target language, and students with the prerequisite reading skills are generally expected to complete the reading assignments in the target language.
