Yerevan State University launches Caucasus Studies profession

14:24, 16.07.2012 Region: Armenia Theme: Society, Culture

YEREVAN. – In its new education year the Yerevan State University (YSU) will have 3,507 new applicants whose 381 will receive state-funded, whereas 3,126 students will receive paid education, YSU Rector Aram Simonyan said during a press conference on Monday.

He added that, overall, he is satisfied with results of the university entrance examinations.       

Recalling that paid education departments’ male students are not exempt from postponing their obligatory military service, Simonyan pointed to the method for being registered at the University. 

Also, YSU rector noted that this year it was very difficult to enroll students in the faculties of natural sciences. 

“It is bizarre that although these professions are very popular throughout the world, they are not in demand in Armenia,” said Aram Simonyan. 

He also noted that a new profession, that of Caucasus Studies, is established at YSU this year.

“Already there are fifty Caucasus Studies profession students in the University this year, and they will have an opportunity to learn several languages, including Azerbaijani and Georgian as well,” YSU Rector stated.
