Zahra Institute Online Kurdish Studies Certificate Program

Zahra Institute announced the launch of its Online Kurdish Studies Certificate Program. An interdisciplinary initiative, the eight-week certificate program is the first of its kind in the United States. This English-language program is designed to provide students and researchers with strategic knowledge of the structure and history of the Kurdish language and the social structures and culture of the Kurdish people. The course, now open to enrollment by students and professionals anywhere in the world, will be delivered from April 5 to May 27, 2021. It consists of three core courses: (1) History and Structure (Syntax) of Kurdish Language, (2) Reading Skills for Kurdish (Kurmanji) Texts in Kurdo-Arabic Script, and (3) Introduction to Kurdish Society and Culture. 

"We are really excited to launch this program," says Dr. Ibrahim Bor, the Deputy Director of Zahra Institute. "Students and scholars with different levels of familiarity with Kurdish language and society will find it a streamlined package that will aid their research and help them better navigate the field." 

The deadline for applications is March 19, 2021. For more information about the program and the application form, click here.
