The Armenian Studies Program at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, began in 1976 with the introduction of courses in the Western Armenian language and a survey of Armenian history. In 1981 the Alex Manoogian Chair in Modern Armenian History was established, thanks to the generous gift of Mr. and Mrs. Alex Manoogian. Six years later, the Marie Manoogian Chair in Armenian Language and Literature was created, making the University of Michigan–Ann Arbor a major center of Armenian Studies in the United States.

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. In addition to language, literature and history instruction, the Armenian Studies Program offers courses on Armenian architecture, Armenian-American literature, the Modern Armenian Renaissance, and Armenian intellectual history.

The University of Michigan Armenian Studies Program is pleased to announce that this year's Summer Language Institute will be held from June 20 through August 18, 2003 in Yerevan, Armenia. The program offers a unique opportunity to study the Armenian Language in an intensive format while surrounded by Armenian culture and history. The SLI is open to all undergraduate, graduate and professional school students, attending any North American or European colleges or universities, who wish to learn Classical Armenian, as well as Modern Eastern and Western Armenian. A series of lectures on Armenian culture and history and an extensive program of excursions and cultural events will supplement the courses. North American undergraduate students are required to take the course for credit (8 credit hours); exceptions may be made for valid reasons. U.S. graduate students enroll for a non-credit certificate for Eastern or Western Armenian, and may take Classical Armenian for credit (6 hours.) European students may take any of the courses for a non-credit certificate only. The same academic and program 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.

In addition to high quality intensive language instruction the program offers the opportunity to live and learn in Armenia. The program is directed by Dr. Kevork Bardakjian, Marie Manoogian Professor of Armenian Language and Literature and Director of the Armenian Studies Program at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
