BA in Middle East Studies
The Middle East Studies Center (MESC) supports research, teaching, and outreach across various disciplines. MESC administers the BA, Diploma, and MA program in Middle East Studies, whose alumni span academia, the private sector, NGOs, and government service. Through various curricular and extracurricular activities, we aim to build on the center's international reputation and location as a natural hub for Middle Eastern studies.
Through participation in conferences, lectures, and workshops, students present ground-breaking research on anthropology, religion, history, political science, economics, gender, law, and literature.
Middle East Studies is an interdisciplinary program. Courses are taught by anthropology, Arabic studies, economics, history, political science, and sociology faculty members. Through intensive study of the region’s history, culture, and current issues, students gain a comprehensive understanding of the modern Middle East.
Graduates of the Middle East Studies Center hold academic positions, work in jobs in the private sector, NGOs and in the governmental sector.
