This interdisciplinary program is designed to introduce students to a variety of topics and issues in the history, politics, languages, societies and cultures of the Middle East and to give them the opportunity to study the Middle East using the tools of several different disciplines. The program is offered as a minor field that complements a wide array of majors. It is particularly valuable for students who wish to combine an interest in the Middle East with majors such as History, Anthropology, Sociology, or Political Science in preparation for graduate work in Middle Eastern Studies or for professional careers in education, business, government, foreign service, law, and journalism, among others.
