"Cornell University is the only institution that offers Sinhala Language instruction during the academic year for undergraduates and postgraduate students. Therefore, the Sinhala Language program is unique. Language learning plays a vital part in our role as global citizens. Less commonly taught languages like Sinhala enrich and complete our sense of the global cultures and heritages." - Bandara Herath, Sinhala Language Lecturer
As Asia continues to expand its influence in the world, Cornell’s Department of Asian Studies has grown to reflect the importance of the region globally and now offers more Asian languages for study than any other American university.
