   More : Iranology is a branch of Orientalism, which appeared in the end of the 20th. century, after the deciphering of the cuneiform and the translation of the old book of the Iranian peoples - Avesta. In Bulgaria Iranology is studied as a separate specialty as of 1993/94 year. Students iranologists have to learn persian and kurdish languages, the history and literature of Iran for four years, and they can attend any of the courses and modules of the other specialties in the Center for Eastern Languages and Cultures of the Sofia Universities. Those who have graduated find their realisation in the fields of diplomacy, business relation, academical activities, special services and others.
