Since the first year of its formation, the Chair of Armenian Language and Literature has led a knowledge-based, student-centered and quality education policy.
The teachers of the Chair teach not only Armenian Language and Literature in difficult faculties but also related subjects such as “Armenian Language and Terminology”, “Speech Culture”, “Armenian Language and its Teaching Methodology”, “Theory of Literature Studies”, “Children’s Literature and its Teaching Methodology”, etc.
The staff members of the Chair have been actively leading scientific-pedagogical activities for years. They have supervised research papers, have authored numerous articles and monographs, and are involved in activities relating to the issues of the Armenian language and Armenian literature teaching methodology.
The role of the Chair of Armenian Language and Literature is significant in the national education, literary-artistic thinking, especially in the field of training elementary school teachers-specialists. The Armenian language is taught at a proper level to foreign students of the Faculty of Medicine as well; in this respect, considerable success has been achieved. The Chair encourages different students with high academic performance and also involves them in scientific conferences organized by the University.
The Chair of Armenian Language and Literature is the organizer of educational-informative events held at the University, and it actively collaborates with house-museums, the Writers’ Union, creative organizations, centers of Armenian studies, the NAS Institute of Literature, House-Museum of Avetik Isahakian.
The Chair has a series of strategic goals among which the followings are prioritized: revision of study programs in accordance with the new requirements of the Quality Assurance Center; modernization of measures taken towards distance learning, revision of lists of compulsory and elective courses involved in study programs in line with the requirements of the labor market.
The Chair of Law pursues the aim to prepare lawyers with necessary knowledge, skills and competences in compliance with the requirements of national and international labor markets who will become high-quality professionals in various fields of Law.
Student-centered teaching gives an opportunity to organize classes on projects and real cases, ensuring flexible educational modules and the possibility to continue education further on. The Law Clinic greatly contributes to this and it has signed a cooperation memorandum with the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in Armenia /UNHCR/ and “Mission Armenia” charity NGO, based on which it carries out “Law for All: Street Law” and “Refugee Rights” programs. Within the frames of these programs the students of the Clinic visit high schools and colleges, conduct seminar-discussions on international and intrastate rights of refugees for pupils and pedagogues. These programs contribute to the raising of awareness and legal conscience among teenagers and pedagogues, and the students enhance their theoretical knowledge and at the same time develop practical skills and competences. This increases students’ responsibility towards their education, career, capacity building and acquisition of learning outcomes of the study programs.
