The Armenian Studies Program

The Armenian Studies Program engages students in the interdisciplinary study of the one of the world’s oldest civilizations, by exploring the language, art, literature, and history of the Armenian people and connecting this knowledge to the world today.

The Armenian Studies Program at Fresno State, today the largest undergraduate Program in the United States, was the first such program in the California State University system.

The Armenian Studies Programs administers 37 scholarship funds that provide financial assistance for students enrolled in Armenian and Armenian Studies courses. Tuition has continued to increase and so the need for scholarships has also increased to assist deserving students.

In 2021-2022, the Armenian Studies Program awarded $85,000 in scholarships to 52 students. The Program also offers a Minor in Armenian Studies, which provides in-depth experience into the field.

The Armenian Studies Program sponsors an Annual Lecture Series that brings speakers, films, and programs to the general public. This series has been an important means for community engagement with the University.

The Armenian Studies Program goal for this year’s Annual Fund Drive is $50,000.

The generosity of our donors ensures that we provide the best experience possible for our students, as well as the community at large.

We appreciate your continued support.
