In autumn of 1994, the University of Washington Scandinavian Department, with support from the Center for Russian, East European and Central Asian Studies, began teaching the languages of the three Baltic States, Estonian, Latvian, and Lithuanian at multiple levels.

Prominent speakers on Baltic topics are regularly brought to the University for guest lectures and consultation with faculty and students.
