(Translation) The first classes in Russian at Dalhousie were offered in the autumn of 1944, making it one of the oldest Russian programs in Canada. Its first MA thesis (on Pushkin's life and works) was defended in 1947 by Julia A. Swanburg. We administer the oldest continuously-operating Russian study abroad program in Canada.
