The Middle East Studies guide has been created to introduce the Middle East Collection and resources, which include dictionaries, encyclopedias, books, databases, guides, as well as audios, films, and other types of media.
Middle East Studies is an interdisciplinary program which offers students the opportunity to study the Middle East in depth from a variety of perspectives. The program includes instruction in the major languages (Arabic, Hebrew, and Persian) of the region, advanced training in literature and linguistics, and area studies concentrating on the history, politics, economics, religions, cultures and social institutions of the Middle East. Courses are offered through the Middle East Center in conjunction with the departments of Anthropology, Economics, History, Languages and Literature and Political Science.
