University of Maryland Promotes Persian Cultural Program

Thursday, November 1, 2007

The Center for Persian Studies (CPS) of the Roshan Cultural Heritage Institute at the University of Maryland has augmented its program of Persian studies due to the great interest in Persian culture and language shown by U.S. students.

The institute focuses on improving the standards of Persian language and literature teaching. The popularity of such courses shows that many Iranian second generation immigrants, who are now students at U.S. universities, want to learn more about their identity and their cultural roots.

The CPS, established in the autumn of 2004 at the University of Maryland College Park (UMCP), intends to foster the growth of teaching and scholarship in all aspects of Iranian culture and civilization and help enhance mutual understanding amongst Americans of all ethnic, linguistic, and cultural backgrounds and those of Iranian and Persian-speaking parentage within the larger U.S. society.
