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. Currently the first international English-language school is being constructed in Dilijan (to be opened in 2014).
In the 2007 academic year, the Department on "Linguistics and Intercultural Relations" was opened at Yerevan State University, to focus on general national values, cultural and language diversity, world culture, religion, tolerance etc.
