Department of Russian and Slavic Studies

The Russian Studies Internship Project is designed to assist McGill undergraduate students in the Department of Russian Studies in their search for a first career related work experience. These internships can also give students the opportunity to improve their Russian language skills and explore the Russian community at home and abroad. Internships may last from eight weeks to four months, and perhaps longer. A database has been created to assist students with their search.
