There is both a domestic and an overseas component to the program. The domestic component trains students to reach the language proficiency required for the overseas component in Baku, Azerbaijan. The overseas program features formal coursework, conversations with language partners, bi-weekly excursions, and homestays with Turkish-speaking families. Participants benefit from additional opportunities for professional language development through courses in Turkish studies during the fall semester and professional internships with local organizations or the hosting university during the spring semester.
