All boys are required to serve in the military at the age of 18 years, unless they are deferred by virtue of being a daytime student in a higher education institution.With that background in mind and following an award from the SRA Innovative Small Grants Program, we set out to examine the influences of globalization on Armenian adolescents, in locales both rural (92 adolescents, 50 girls, 42 boys; M = 15.93 years of age) and urban (80 adolescents; 46 girls, 34 boys; M = 15.90 years of age).In 2006, when my sister first moved to rural Armenia to serve as an English teacher in the Peace Corps, most students in rural parts of Armenia had never used a computer.If there were computers available, Internet service and electricity were very unreliable.My sister saw the critical need for students to have access to computers, and she wrote a grant for a small computer lab.In the fall of 2007, the first computer lab (five computers) with intermittent Internet service at Vardenis State College was constructed, funded by a Peace Corps grant.Because the Soviet factories closed and jobs vanished, many people in rural towns went back to producing most of their own food – vegetables, fruits, milk, eggs, and meat – to survive.It is estimated that thousands of men of working age leave Armenia yearly to take jobs in Russia (Ionesyan, 2010; Mc Guinness, 2011).

Students were recruited from rural sites, which included the state college, a high school, and the YMCA, and from urban sites, which included a university, a college, a high school, a library, and several youth clubs.

Most families, especially in rural areas, live on very low incomes; about half of Armenia’s rural population lives in poverty (Solomon, 2010).

The great majority of the residents do not own automobiles and many have never traveled outside of Armenia, a country the size of Maryland.

To our knowledge, this is the first investigation involving adolescents in Armenia.

Two native Armenian scholars who are fluent in English, Anna Mkrtchyan Karapetyan and Tatevik Shaboyan, helped to construct the items for the world knowledge test, an indicator of globalization.
