It seeks to deliver an academically and professionally enriching experience and offer a unique program for those who wish an intimate, insider's look at modern Iran.

The Iranian Studies Intensive Course is a well-balanced mixture of 1) academic lectures by outstanding professors, 2) handpicked social programs, and 3) cultural tours guided by experts of the filed. The academic lectures give you plenty of opportunities to better understand contemporary Iran. The social programs give you the chance to take part in reflective events and activities to taste real-life experiences in Iran. And the guided tours of Iran let you truly immerse yourself in the vibrant atmosphere that Iran has to offer.
