What are some common Russian mistakes in English? (+ Russian slang, naming, and swearing help)

Fandom/Setting: Teen Wolf/MCU (namely Daredevil and the Black Widow)

I need to know:

1.) Common and distinctive English mistakes made by native Russian speakers
2.) A Russian name that in some way connects to "Deucalion"
3.) The kind of Russian swearwords you shout when you stub your toe or realize you've lost
4.) Russian diminutives relating to spiders and wolves

How to refer to Yale University School of Art?

Quick question. I have a minor character who has an MFA from the Yale University School of Art, but in spite of trawling their website and a few others, I haven't been able to figure out whether she'd refer to it as Yale University School of Art, or as Yale School of Art, or the Yale School of Art, or something else.

The line is literally, 'I have an MFA in sculpture from....'

I'd like to get this right. If anyone knows, please tell me!

Also, belated thanks to everyone who responded to my question about a skin condition for my local drug dealer.
