Academics in general is fine. I am a senior and I'm extremely frustrated with Bryn Mawr Russian Flagship program. I'm taking RUSS 390 and the class is not what I expected. They told me it's going to prepare me for life and work in Russia, but it's just a very monotonous literature class. I don't understand why it's called Pre-Professionals: we don't discuss current events, Russian news, what Russians think about different issues, we don't talk about politics or culture. I stayed in the class because I didn't have a choice. It's not preparing me for next year in St. Petersburg at all. Working with the tutor was helpful, I enjoyed it. Other than that not so good. Anybody having similar experiences with Language Flagship classes? We have just one class for seniors and it's a sleeper literature class. Arabic? Chinese? Portland?
