Middle East Studies

The study of a world region is intended to provide students with a broad, integrated overview of the influences that have shaped, and continue to shape, its internal evolution as well as the role it plays in the world. The Middle East Studies major introduces students to the cultural, economic. historical and political forces that have combined to determine its contemporary character, shape U.S. policy towards the region and produce the resurgence of Islam that it is currently experiencing.

Students pursuing the Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree are required to complete a foreign language minor in a language appropriate to the chosen specialization. 

Those choosing to complete the Bachelor of Science (BS) degree must complete a minor in one of the following areas:  Agribusiness, City and Regional Planning, Environmental Science, General Business, Geographic Information Science, or Global Public Health.
