Central Asian Studies Program in Kyrgyzstan, SRASEscrito por eurasianet en . Posted in Formación, Noticias
Dear Students and Scholars of Central Asia:
The School of Russian and Asian Studies (SRAS) is offering an
original, innovative, immersive program to which we are inviting a new
generation of Central Asian scholars and future diplomats to participate.
The Central Asian Studies program is offered as a semester-long course
in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, with an option to extend for a second period
(semester or summer). An 8-week summer program is also offered, with a
slightly modified curriculum. The program combines intensive language
study (options to study Russian, Kyrgyz, Uzbek, Kazakh, Tajik, or
Turkmen) with courses on the regional history of the specific
countries and major cultures of this diverse area. A month of home
stay, an extensive cultural program and educational travel to
Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan are included to give a deeper understanding
of what locals think and how they live. Students will gain a wider,
fuller, first-hand perspective on geopolitics and foreign relations
for their future in government, business, or academia.
This course not only provides one of the only opportunities for study
and immersion in this strategically and historically important region,
but is a challenging course of study for more general International
Relations students for whom this would be an intensive area focus/case
study. This program is valuable at the undergrad and graduate levels
and also as a transition or preparatory study between these two levels
I invite you to look over the program description
