Online Kurdish Kurmanji - Summer 2021

The University of Arizona (UA) Center for Middle Eastern Studies and Critical Languages Program, with institutional partner University of Texas-Austin Center for Middle Eastern Studies, are offering Elementary Kurdish Kurmanji during Summer 2021. Kurmanji, northern Kurdish, is the most widely used dialect of the Kurdish language, spoken primarily in Turkey and Syria, as well as in Iraq, Iran, and former Soviet republics.

FOR-CREDIT COURSE - Kurdish 101

This for-credit course, which meets online synchronously on Thursdays from 2-4pm (PT), runs from May 17 through July 2  (Seven Week - First, Summer Session) and is taught by Mutlu Çiviroğlu.

Domestic and international non-UA students interested in taking the course need to first register as undergraduate non-degree seeking students (It may be possible to register past the deadline of May 3. Contact Julie Ellison-Speight at jellison@arizona.edu for questions.) at https://admissions.arizona.edu/deadlines/non-degree-seeking. Even though the course is online, it is taught through the Main Campus and not UA Online. Thus, you will need to be admitted through the Main Campus and not through UA Online. Once you are admitted, you will need to work with your assigned advisor to waive immunization requirements and, if applicable, international student orientation requirements before you can register for the course.

Summer registration starts on April 5 (details). The course you will register for is CRL 101 – Elementary Language Study I, Section 325, Topic: Elementary Kurdish (details), a 4-unit course. Please contact the Critical Languages Program at critlang@email.arizona.edu in order to finalize registration. Make sure you give them your UA NetID and/or Student ID.
