Schedule a Department Visit

Visiting the Department of Near Eastern Studies is the best way to learn about our programs, see our students and faculty in action, and explore our vibrant and beautiful campus. We accept prospective student visits from juniors or seniors in high school, as well as transfer students from other institutions.

Prospective students will have the opportunity to visit with our program administrators, interact with faculty, attend classes, and tour our facilities Monday through Friday during regular business hours. In preparation for your arrival, we ask that you contact the department at least two weeks in advance of your visit. Email or call (734) 764-0314 to set-up your visit.
