Slavic Studies is a program that focuses on the history, society, politics, culture, and economics of one or more of the Slavic peoples inhabiting Europe, Asia, and in immigrant groups elsewhere, including the study of the emergence and migration patterns of Slavic culture, languages, and populations.

Slavic Studies majors and degree programs are generally interdisciplinary but may offer one disciplinary focus in history, political science, economics, religion, anthropology, sociology, art, film, or music.  There may also be a particular focus on a particular Slavic (non-Russian) literature and culture.
