Global Middle East Studies, Minor
The Global Middle East Studies minor offers students an in-depth, interdisciplinary grounding in the histories and present-day realities of the Middle East in a global context. The goal is to ensure students have a well-developed and competitive foundation to continue their studies at the graduate level in the U.S. and globally, and/or begin a career in law, business, consulting, foreign affairs, humanitarian affairs, medicine, science, or security studies, in which both theoretical and practical/first-hand knowledge of the regions we study are equally important.
Global Middle East Studies is both an attractive program and the perfect complement to numerous other programs on campus, particularly those with a disciplinary focus such as history, comparative literature, anthropology, political science, sociology, art history, international studies, global cultures, business, pre-law and criminology, pre-med, computer and information sciences, engineering, and other physical sciences. The Global Middle East Studies minor can be combined with any major.
