The Armenian Studies Program
The Armenian Studies Program was established in 1977 and the Center for Armenian Studies
was founded in 1988. The Center provides an opportunity for students and faculty to
interact and currently houses the Armenian Studies Program, the Sahatdjian Armenian
Studies Library, the Avedian Armenian Studies Archives, the newspaper Hye Sharzhoom/Armenian
Action, the Armenian Students Organization, and the Index of Armenian Art.
The Haig and Isabel Berberian Endowed Chair in Armenian Studies, established in the fall of 1988, is one of several Armenian Chairs in the United States and provides financial support for a distinguished Armenologist. The endowment honors Haig and Isabel Berberian and was established by their son-in-law and daughter, Dr. and Mrs. Arnold H. and Dianne Gazarian. Other friends of the Armenian Studies Program have made significant contributions to the endowment.
