Faculty of Translation and Intercultural Communication (TIC)

The Faculty aims at preparing professionals with intercultural communication and translation skills.

The main activities of the FTIC target at developing various forms of intercultural and cross-linguistic communication, particularly, building translation and communication competences.

We believe that highly qualified translations and effective communication can contribute to intercultural and international interactions, increase cultural awareness, build tolerance and mutual respect.

The Faculty offers modern academic programs designed for English-Armenian, French-Armenian, German-Armenian, Italian-Armenian, Korean-Armenian and Chinese-Armenian language pairs. Moreover, The Faculty ensures intercultural education by teaching Area Studies of the native countries of the languages studied.

Goals: to provide cross-linguistic and intercultural communication awareness, skills, abilities and competences on the basis of understanding the social and cultural characteristics of the languages studied and the mother tongue.

Mission: to become a national and regional center of excellence for education of translation and theory of translation.
