    Master’s Degree
    AVC administers, and confers a Master’s Degree program in Armenian Language and Intercultural Communication.

    Certificate Programs
    There are no prior requirements for eligibility. Anyone of any age who is interested in pursuing Armenian Education may enroll

    They also has a chess masterclass!

    The course fee is very affordable and they also offer some scholarship:

    The best part? AVC holds a license granted by the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Armenia, and currently is in the process of getting international accreditation. AVC students may transfer credits from AVC to their learning institutions (high schools and universities) across the world.

    Anyone has experience on this college? Any thoughts?

    Never heard of them either, but they provide a detailed syllabus of their Armenian courses ( and I would be less concerned about the recognition of the language courses than of the learning you gain in them, especially given the low tuition ($199 per course.) You might be able to list it under Professional Development as Basic/Intermediate/Advanced Armenian courses as opposed to under Education.

    I like them.

    The Armenian alphabet is nice... invention of one man, St. Mesrop Mashtots. I like one-man alphabets - Sequoyah's (a.k.a. George Gist - a Cherokee, formerly illiterate, who made the standard alphabet for his language, used today) George Bernard Shaw etc. I was once required to devise an alphabet in an imagination exercise in a writing course. I tried to make it adaptable to as many languages as possible. Still got it somewhere -

    Armenia has another distinction - Armenians are very proud of being the first country to fully adopt Christianity. But y'all knew this already, right?

    Oh, I like them, too. I think it's a sincere effort, but I honestly don't know anything about their academic standing.
    Anyway, Շնորհավոր Սուրբ Ծնունդ!!

    Thanks. I understand that's pronounced "Shnorhavor Surb Tsnund!!" Sounds a bit like Old Norse -or an active volcano in Iceland. I'd never have expected that!
