Funded by the U.S. Department of Education, the High School-to-College Articulation Project (HSCAP) is designed for Russian language learners at the advanced high school level and novice-intermediate college level, as well as heritage learners. The project combines the study of advanced Russian language with several aspects of Russian culture.

Legacy Resources

Business Russian

Business Russian is one of the oldest sets of modules on Russnet. They are no longer actively supported, but may be converted in the future to bring them up to date with the other core modules. These modules still require the old Russnet fonts.

Cultural Map of Russia

Cultural Map of Russia is also an older Russnet resource that is no longer actively supported. There is some useful information on various regions of Russia, though the Russian text also requires the old Russnet fonts. This resource will not be revived in it's current form - though the content will likely find it's way into future Russnet modules.
