Middle Eastern Studies

Beginning in Spring 2021, students interested in declaring a minor in Middle East Studies should do so through a concentration within the Asian Studies department. Please visit the Asian Studies website for more information, and be in touch with one of the affiliated faculty with additional questions. The MES minor will no longer be offered for students matriculating in the fall of 2021 and later.

The Middle East Studies minor allows students to thoroughly explore the cultures, politics, societies and economies of Middle Eastern and Northern African countries.
