With more than twenty-five faculty members specializing in everything from ancient Mesopotamia to the modern Middle East, the department of Middle East Studies offers an especially deep training to students as they aim to become researchers, teachers, and policy makers.

Our program develops students’ historiographical and analytical skills, as well as their proficiency in relevant languages, whether ancient or modern. Students are encouraged to take advantage of the many connections between Middle East Studies and other departments on campus, and thus to shape a program that is specifically matched to their research interests.
