Middle Eastern Studies

This FIGS will help you understand American perspectives of the Middle East and North Africa and explore issues such as diverse as culture, language, religion, and gender. We will examine what we know about the Middle East and how knowledge has been shaped (and sometimes misshaped) by historical events and international politics. Throughout the course, you will engage in informed dialogues about the Middle East, meet faculty affiliated with the Center for Middle Eastern Studies, and learn about a variety of academic paths and career opportunities related to this exciting field.
