The Armenian Studies Program was initiated in 1976 with the introduction of Armenian language courses to the university's curriculum. Since then, the program has expanded its offerings to include architecture, history, language, literature, and culture. The gifts of two endowed chairs by the Manoogian family constitute the University of Michigan Armenian Endowment and have established, in perpetuity, the study if Armenian culture at the University of Michigan.

Courses taught by Professor Kevork B. Bardakjian (literature) and a Professor of Armenian history constitute the core of the Armenian Studies Program complemented by outreach activities, and the Armenian Language Summer Institute in Yerevan, Armenia.

Armenian Language Summer Institute in Yerevan, Armenia

The Armenian Studies Program at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor is pleased to announce the 1999 Armenian Language Summer Institute to be held in Yerevan, Armenia from June 25 to August 23, 1999. The program is open to all college and university undergraduate and graduate students who wish to learn Classical Armenian or Modern Eastern or Western Armenian. This unique program offers high quality intensive language instruction, and the unusual experience of living and learning in Armenia.

The Program

One level of intensive Classical Armenian, one level of intensive Western Armenian, and one level of intensive Eastern Armenian will be taught: Intensive Classical Armenian (483), Intensive Beginning Western Armenian (173), and Intensive Beginning Eastern Armenian (183). Students will be housed in dormitories at Yerevan State University. Classes will meet for eight weeks. Enrollment will be limited to 8 students in each course. The program is open to all undergraduate, graduate, and professional school students, from both the United States/Canada and Europe. A series of lectures on Armenian culture and history and an extensive program of excursions and cultural events will supplement the courses. Undergraduate students are required to take the course for credit (8 or 6 credit hours depending on course taken); graduate students may choose to enroll for a non-credit certificate, or may take Classical Armenian for credit; European students may only take the courses for a non-credit certificate. The same academic criteria will apply to credit and non-credit students. A few partial scholarships, based on need, are available to undergraduates taking the course for credit.

The all-inclusive fee for students taking the program for credit is $4,500; for students not taking the program for credit, the fee is $3,500. These amounts include round-trip airfare (New York-Yerevan-New York), board and lodging, tuition and fees, course materials, and excursions. European student pay a $2,000 (US$) fee which includes all of the above except travel expenses; these must be covered by the European students themselves.
