LUMS Urdu Language Program – Summer session 2021
The LUMS Urdu Language Program, a brand new opportunity for students from around the world to study Urdu language and literature and learn about Pakistani society and culture firsthand at LUMS, the leading university in Pakistan’s cultural capital, Lahore.
Urdu is a key research language for students of South Asian history, geography, politics, art history, literature, cinema, religion, and other fields; we aim to provide an immersive program in Pakistan for students of Urdu as a second language that also will facilitate their other scholarly work in the region. The LUMS Urdu Language Program is housed on our secure campus where students will have access to our world-class library, gym, dining facilities, medical center, and other university amenities and student services.
In Pakistan and at LUMS we will provide students with a truly immersive Urdu experience. In Lahore, students will have the opportunity to be immersed in a world of Urdu both inside and outside of the classroom. Not only they will be able to explore the city of Urdu literary giants such as Iqbal, Faiz, and Manto, but also have the chance to be surrounded by Urdu in public spaces and most importantly to experience daily interactions in the language.
Our cutting-edge, student-centered curriculum has been developed by a team of specialized instructors with extensive pedagogical training and experience in the United States. Our teachers have taught at leading universities including the University of Virginia, Indiana University Bloomington, Michigan State University, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and have been trained in Urdu language pedagogy at the University of Texas at Austin and at UC Berkeley.
