Middle East Studies

The Middle East at this time of transition offers complex challenges and promise.

Following the uprisings, there is a possibility of more democracy in the Gulf, North Africa and the Levant and the hope of peace in the Arab-Israeli conflict. The study of the Middle East includes history, politics, culture, religion, language and literature, all of which interact and make for an exciting learning experience. Students may purse work in government, business, the Foreign Service and further study towards a graduate degree.
