The seminar was attended by members of administrative and professorial staff of YSUIB Faculty of Applied Arts, students and guests.
During the seminar, Faina Harutyunyan exchanged her advanced experience, introduced her formula for success to the students of YSUIB “Design” and “Applied Arts” specialties.
The renowned designer touched upon the ways of selling clothes, introduced her work experience and how to start up.
She talked about advertising and advised to understand even the most demanding client, explaining what the trend is, which are the trends of the coming year.
It was emphasized that in the design of clothing it was necessary to recognize all the designers in the style. To the question of how the price is determined, Faina replied that all the designers have their secret. She determines the cost of her clothes so that she does not have a loss.
Her main message to students was not to miss out the opportunity to learn (as much as possible), work, build, knit, and sew.
Feeling enthusiastic, Faina Harutyunyan inspired and motivated our students to create and work.
Within the framework of the internship of 2018-2019 academic year, the first and second-year students of “Tourism” specialty of YSUIB accompanied by Alina Ulikhanyan and Levon Lachikyan, assistants of the Department of Tourism Management and Culturology, visited several places of interest of Armenia, different sites of Yerevan (historical and cultural sites: churches, monasteries, museums, natural monuments, tourism industry service companies, hotels, tourism food companies, etc.).
During the internship, the students visited different destinations in Ijevan, Dilijan, Gyumri, Echmiadzin and Yerevan. They first visited museums, hotels and guesthouses in Ijevan and Dilijan, Haghartsin complex and then visited other regions.
The visit to Shirak Region, Gyumri was of special interest for students. They had heard a lot about this unusual and strict Armenian town and now it was time to see it. Students walked along the streets and squares of the city, got acquainted with historical monuments and then visited A. Isahakyan and H. Shiraz home-museums.
Within the framework of the internship, the next tour Ijevan-Yerevan-Etchmiadzin-Zvartnots-Yerevan-Ijevan was carried out. Students got acquainted with Ejmiatsin and Yerevan tourism resources as well as participated in the Dolma Festival, held in the Zvartnots temple, which is recently one of the fastest-growing tourism events in Armenia.
The internship gives students a special opportunity to perform their own research and tasks to collect, classify, analyze, combine and evaluate professional information, contributing to the deeper recognition of their country’s tourism resources, service sector, culture, history and geography.

On May 17, 2019, YSU Ijevan Branch hosted a lecture entitled “The Present and Future in the Context of Archeology of Tavush Region”, conducted by the researcher of the Institute of Archeology and Ethnography of the National Academy of Sciences of Armenia, archeologist Irena Kalantaryan.
For about ten years, I. Kalantaryan has been engaged in the exploration of the Getahovit-2 cave in Ijevan, managing an archaeological expedition. She has been a co-founder of the Armenian-French joint expedition for two years in the field, which has carried out work on identifying monuments.
The lecture aimed at introducing the results of the archeological works in the region, the new achievements in the scientific sphere.
Kalantaryan first touched upon the great contributors of the archeological heritage study in the region, and then briefly spoke about the “Getahovit-2” cave and Hovk tomb field in Dilijan. She introduced the degree of their study, the importance of the monuments, the current problems, the importance of the archeological material, the problems in science, the need for study, and the prospects of use.
The seminar discussed issues related to the archeological works to be done in the region, possibilities of involving the Branch students within the framework of the internship, the possibilities of incorporating monuments in the development of tourism in the region and its importance. The archeological monument-tourism venue, developed by her and its importance, was perhaps the most vital part of the lecture.
At the end, Irena Kalantaryan and the participants of the discussion touched upon the interest of the new generation in the field of archeological heritage, their behavior, the most frequently encountered phenomena and other similar issues.
