We live in a “post-9/11 world”—a world that assumes pressing interest in the Middle East. But what is the Middle East?
Simply looking at a map may not solve this problem. See for yourself:
In the Middle East Studies minor, students can expect to tackle issues of definition, region, geography, politics and political histories, histories that span Greek and Roman empires to post-revolution Iran and beyond, religions, languages, and more across disciplines in the College of Arts and Sciences. These issues are pressing in a post-9/11 world—a world that, as we stated above, assumes a pressing interest in the Middle East.
Additionally, the Middle East Studies Program sponsors a variety of lectures and cultural events on campus related to the region. Please check our website and the GRS calendar for upcoming events during the year.
