In coordination with Arizona State University, Yerevan State University designed an interdisciplinary curriculum with courses on topics including American politics, foreign policy, history, economics, and society.  Additionally, and with support from the U.S. Embassy—Arizona State University will host six Armenian scholars during the 2021-2022 academic year for training, research, and further development of curriculum for the American Studies program at Yerevan State University.
