Armenia/ 8.3 Arts and cultural education  

8.3.3 Intercultural education

There is no perceived requirement for intercultural education in the timetables of Armenian schools. Schools are mostly Armenian although, in the regions inhabited by national minorities, Assyrian, Yezidi, Kurdish, and Greek classes operate. There are also two Russian schools for the Russian-speaking population. The first international English-language school opened in Dilijan, in September, 2014.

In the 2007 academic year, the Department of "Linguistics and Intercultural Relations" was opened at Yerevan State University, which focuses on general national values, cultural and language diversity, world culture, religion, tolerance etc.

For more information, see our Intercultural Dialogue section.
