Description

They provide programs in various fields, including Zoology, Public Policy, Human Rights, Arts and Culture, Journalism, Education, Architecture, Health, Engineering, Agriculture, and much more.

Armenia is located at the foot of the biblical Mount Ararat and is often called an open-air museum. The country has ten climate zones and highly enchanting, diverse and untouched landscapes. The capital city of Yerevan is a bustling cosmopolitan center that boasts a thriving cafe culture. Its arts and culture scene provides a wide range of festivals, sports events, concerts, and more.
