Moscow, Russia


Contingent on student interest, Texas Tech offers a faculty led summer study abroad program in Moscow at the GRINT institute. The program typically begins in late May and ends early in July, usually before the start of Summer II at Texas Tech. The program includes six weeks of intensive language training, local cultural events and excursions, a weekend trip to St. Petersburg, housing, round trip airfare, and six hours of TTU credit. The program can accommodate students with no Russian language experience, but we can only offer five hours of TTU credit for beginners.

Texas Tech also has a partnership agreement with the GRINT, which allows individual students to study in summer, semester, or academic year programs.
