The Origins of Christian Liberal Arts Higher Education in Russia: A Case Study of the Russian-American Christian University
Titarchuk, Victor N.
Christian Higher Education, v10 n5 p381-396 2011
This is a case study of the historical development of a private Christian faith-based school of higher education in post-Soviet Russia from its conception in 1990 until 2010. This binational school was founded as Russian-American Christian University (RACU) in 1996. In 2003, business and economics as well as social work undergraduate academic programs were accredited by the Russian Ministry of Education. In 2008, RACU added English language and literature to the list of its state-accredited undergraduate academic programs. The academic model of RACU was designed according to the traditional American Christian liberal arts model and adapted to the Russian higher education system.
