Russian Language and Literature was founded in 1949, and its predecessor was the Russian group of the Foreign Languages School of Zhejiang University Humanities Department. It has enrolled master’s students since 1985, and now recruits master’s students and doctoral students, as well as postdoctoral scholars. FENG Zhaozhen, ZHENG Jinxuan, XU Gaozhen, WANG Yangzheng and other senior scholars have made great achievements in the fields of Russian Literature Research and Translation, Comparative Linguistics, and Russian Grammar, all of which have laid a solid foundation for academic research in these areas.

At present, the Russian program has a highly educated, young and innovative team.
