Armenian Studies

CREES is affiliated with the Armenian Studies Program (ASP) at the University of Michigan, which was established in 1981 with the endowment of the Alex Manoogian Chair in Modern Armenian History. In 1987 a second endowed chair was established, the Marie Manoogian Chair in Armenian Language and Literature. ASP offers graduate student, post-doctoral, pre-doctoral, and visiting scholar fellowships; graduate and undergraduate student research support; specialized symposia, workshops, and conferences; and outreach programs. CREES and ASP frequently collaborate on programs including public lectures. The Department of Near Eastern Studies offers an undergraduate concentration and minor in Armenian studies and PhD degrees are offered through departments. Students enrolled in the REES M.A. program can choose to focus their studies on Armenia.
