YEREVAN — The American University of Armenia (AUA) is pleased to share news about its Summer Program 2015. The program combines strong academics with the benefits of a safe, welcoming, and exciting environment. If you are looking to take the educational adventure of a lifetime, then apply now at http://im.aua.am by the April 15 deadline date.
The Summer Program is a perfect opportunity if you would like to visit Armenia during the summer while earning university credits. You may choose from a range of courses to match your home university academic plans, and because AUA is a U.S.- accredited and University of California affiliated institution, you can easily transfer summer credits earned at AUA and apply them toward a degree at your home institution. Three courses will be offered jointly by AUA and UCLA.
In addition to the great opportunities on campus, Summer Program participants will combine their academics with the Discover Armenia Educational Tour – five day-long excursions that provide students a genuine glimpse of Armenia’s sights, sounds, and flavors.
Still uncertain of your summer plans? Then consider the fact that AUA has partnered with Birthright Armenia, opening up additional opportunities for applicants of Armenian heritage. If you are accepted to AUA’s Summer Program and extend your stay in Armenia as a volunteer, you may be eligible to receive travel and homestay living assistance. Please visit the web site of Birthright Armenia for details on eligibility criteria.
Students can also stay in the AGBU Vahe Karapetian Center, a multi-purpose educational, cultural and social center for Armenian youth from the Diaspora and Armenia. The off-campus dormitories offer fully furnished, newly renovated single, double, and triple rooms.
