The University of Michigan’s Center for Armenian Studies (ASP) promotes the study of Armenian history, language, culture and society. ASP is built on the solid foundation of rigorous curriculum offered by the two endowed chairs in Armenian studies: The Alex Manoogian Chair in Modern Armenian History (1981) and the Marie Manoogian Chair in Armenian Language and Literature (1987).
