The Central Eurasian Studies Summer Institute (CESSI) is now accepting applications for our summer language program. They offer courses in elementary and intermediate Kazakh, Tajik, Uyghur, and Uzbek. Additional levels and languages (such as Kyrgyz) may be added with sufficient student interest. Several funding opportunities exist for both undergraduate and graduate students.
CESSI is an intensive, eight-week language program hosted each summer at UW-Madison. Students receive the equivalent of one year of language study during this time, and will earn eight credits upon completion of the program. In addition to language classes, CESSI students have the opportunity to attend weekly lectures on Central Eurasia; participate in cultural events, including traditional cooking demonstrations; and engage with local Central Eurasian communities. CESSI is a great way for students to gain language skills before studying abroad, applying for internships, or conducting fieldwork in Central Eurasia.
Students must apply by February 1, 2018 to be considered for funding. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Looking for a fun and worthwhile class to take next semester? Consider taking a Service Learning course! Service Learning courses are just like any other class you take on campus for credit, except there is also a volunteer or community-engagement component to the class. Past students agree that they got more out of their Service Learning course than a traditional course. Click here for more information and a list of courses for Fall 2016.
