The University of Michigan, Ann Arbor
Armenian Summer Institute in Yerevan
Summer 2008

Offering Introductory Courses in:
Classical, Eastern and Western Armenian
And a New Course in Armenian History

The University of Michigan Armenian Studies Program is pleased to
announce this year's Summer Institute which is to be held from June
28 through August 25, 2008 in Yerevan, Armenia. The program offers a
unique opportunity to study the Armenian Language in an intensive,
eight-week long format. This year, our Summer Institute is being
expanded by the addition of a new, six-week long course on Armenian
history and contemporary Armenia in the form of lectures and
discussions to be held concurrently, from July 7 to August 15, 2008.

The SI is open to all undergraduate, graduate and professional school
students, attending any North American or European colleges or
universities, who wish to enroll in one of the following four
sections: Classical, Eastern, or Western Armenian, or Armenian
history. A series of lectures on Armenian culture and an extensive
program of excursions and cultural events will supplement the
courses. North American undergraduate students may take any of the
courses for credit (8 credit hours) or non-credit. North American
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, may be available.

In addition to high quality intensive language and history
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. Experienced
and qualified instructors, including from Yerevan State University
and the University of Michigan, will teach the courses.

The deadline for the submission of completed applications is March 8, 2008.
