Harvard Summer Program in Tbilisi, Georgia

PROGRAM CANCELLED: The Tbilisi, Georgia, PROGRAM WILL NOT RUN IN 2017.

Advance your Russian-language skills while exploring Georgian culture, history, literature, and film.  

The ancient capital city of Tbilisi, which is rapidly developing itself for the twenty-first century, offers you a distinctive and fascinating site for urban studies, as well as a guiding theme for your Russian-language learning. In this program, you undertake small-group fieldwork projects that allow greater contact with the city and its residents, as well as opportunities to use Russian in real-world situations. You meet with city experts, writers, artists, preservationists, politicians, and NGOs.

You also travel extensively within Georgia—to Mtskheta, Davit Gareja, Gori, Borjomi, Batumi, and Kazbegi—to gain a deeper understanding of the Georgian nation and its regional context.
