The Melikian Center supports and mentors undergraduate and graduate students studying Eastern Europe and Eurasia.
*The Baccalaureate Certificate in Russian and East European Studies (REES) encourages students to develop special competency in Russian, Eurasian, or East European languages and area studies. Coursework leading to the certificate is offered by faculty of Agribusiness, Anthropology, Architecture, Geography, History, Political Science, Religious Studies, Russian/Eurasian/East European Languages and Literatures, Sociology, and Women's Studies, but the Certificate program is open to all students, regardless of major.
*The Melikian Center works with interested students to craft a program of studies emphasizing Eastern European or Eurasian studies within the bachelor’s degree in interdisciplinary studies (BIS) program.
*The Melikian Center's Critical Languages Institute (CLI) has evolved into one of the largest summer training facilities in the U.S. for less commonly taught languages, offering courses in 9 languages at up to 6 levels to over 150 students each summer. The signature of the CLI are its hybrid courses, where classes are conducted in two segments, a 7-week course on the ASU campus and an optional 4-week overseas program.
