Schools offering Tibetan Language -- know of any?

<p>My son asked me to post and see if anyone knows of colleges/universities offering Tibetan Language. </p>

<p>He is spending hours trying to hunt down this info -- since it is not a major language, it is usually under religious studies, philosophy, Indian Studies, Southeast Asian Studies, Asian Studies, etc. </p>

<p>So far he knows these schools that offer Tibetan:</p>

<p>Columbia
University of Chicago
Harvard
University of Virginia
University of Wisconsin</p>

<p>And as far as he can tell, these schools do not offer it:</p>

<p>Georgetown
Dartmouth
Yale
Cornell
Brown
Stanford
UNC - Chapel Hill
Duke</p>

<p>Fit and selectivity don't make a difference at this point -- so if you know of any schools that offer Tibetan Language courses as part of their regular academic year, please let me know -- thanks!</p>

<p>Thanks! The Ohio State program is a videoconferencing thing -- which isn't what he is looking for, but the University of Michigan offers both Modern and Classical Tibetan.</p>

<p>Emory offers Tibetan and has a related study abroad program.</p>

<p>Emory-Tibet</a> Partnership at Emory University</p>

<p>I had a horrible time trying to find colleges that offered the various ancient languages I was interested in, and I found the directory of Less</a> Commonly Taught Languages very helpful. Plug in the language and the level, and it gives you a list of places that offer the language.</p>

<p>While Yale doesn't offer Tibetan as part of its regular undergraduate program, the Center for Language Study does, as part of its Directed Independent Language Studies: Languages</a> Offered. Plus, the Beinecke Rare Book Library at Yale has one of the best collections of Tibetan books outside of Asia.</p>

<p>I believe the University of Washington does, as well, however it is probably more sporadic than other schools.</p>

<p>Thanks for the info! I had forgotten about Emory, but that was on his list. the less commonly taught language link was perfect -- much easier than randomly searching university websites!</p>
