BCRS 104 Elementary Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian I
Beginning language course. Development of basic communicative and cultural competencies with interactive approach. Students acquire communicative skills for elementary personal and social needs. They are introduced to the basic Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian language rules and to the cultural context in which Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian discourse occurs. Through regular engagement with authentic multimedia materials they learn to recognize differing aspects of Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian and American life, culture, and values.
If you have turned on a TV set or logged on Twitter lately, you probably have seen a news item on Russia or Ukraine, not to mention countries like Turkey and Iran. From Russian, Polish, Ukrainian, to Bosnian/Croatian/Montenegrin/Serbian (BCMS), to Czech, Turkish, Persian/Tajik/Dar/Farsi, to Yiddish, our department offers only critical languages. In fact, the US government classifies these languages as critical for national security interests, and there are a number of federal scholarships that you can apply for to study them.
The study of Russia, Eastern Europe, and Eurasia studying their languages and cultures gives you a different perspective on the world we live in and allows you to pursue in demand professional opportunities in business and national security.
