Persian at the U
Persian language at the University of Utah is part of the interdisciplinary program in Middle East Studies. Students will not only learn the language but will also gain a preliminary understanding of the cultures connected to the language. Historically, Persian, also known as Farsi, has been spoken from the Middle East to India, but today, is understood in parts of Armenia, Azerbaijan, India, Iraq, Kazakhstan, Pakistan, Turkmenistan and Turkey.
Students desiring a Persian major or minor should pursue the interdisciplinary major in Middle East Studies-Persian Emphasis or one of two associated minors, which are advised by the International and Area Studies Advisors.
