Renaming and Renumbering of Russian Courses

In an effort to make the rationale of its course numbers more logical, the Russian Department has renumbered four of its courses. In some cases, we have also changed the titles of courses. Courses on your transcripts will remain with the old numbers and titles. Courses you have not yet taken will carry the new numbers and titles.
