After organizing 3 Armenian Studies Summer Schools and 1 Armenian Language winter school in Armenia ARMACAD is now pleased to announce its fourth International Armenian Studies Summer School with special focus on modern Eastern Armenian in Yerevan, Armenia to take place from July 16, 2017 to August 05, 2017.
This 21 days summer school offers participants to master skills in written and oral modern Armenian, reading and interpreting Armenian texts from different periods as well as rapidly deepening their knowledge in Armenian Literature.
During the summer school 2 cultural trips will be offered, which will transform your stay in Armenia into an unforgettable, academically oriented endeavour.
On the first day (July 16, Sunday) the program will be launched in Ejmiatsin, where the participants will have a chance to be present at a Divine Liturgy. Afterwards the group will move to Geghard Monastery (12th century), famous for the religious relics kept inside its walls. The most important of such items is the spear, which wounded Christ on the Cross. At the end the group will visit the pagan temple of Garni and travel to Yerevan for an opening dinner.
Classes will start on July 17th and will include lectures, seminars and presentations. Two times a week classes of Armenian language will be followed by a lecture on different topics of Armenian literature and history.
This school is designed for students, at least 18 years-old, who not only want to make well-grounded progress in their knowledge of the Eastern Armenian language, but also to deepen their knowledge of Armenian Studies and Armenia.
