Middle Eastern Studies

The Master of Arts in Middle Eastern Studies offers an interdisciplinary approach to graduate study on the Middle Eastern region and its diaspora. Students enrolled in the program gain a broad understanding of the history, politics, economics, religions, and cultures of this critical region, and develop special competence in their particular area of interest. This is the first M.A. program in the country to incorporate the study of the Middle Eastern diaspora in its curriculum, encouraging new ways of thinking about the adaptation of Middle Eastern immigrant communities in the Americas and Europe. The program is geared to those interested in academic careers as well as those pursuing terminal M.A. degrees in preparation for careers outside the academy such as in public policy, journalism, social work, international relations, economic development, immigrant advocacy, education, or translation/interpretation. Students will have access to diverse faculty and wide expertise as well as to the rich resources available in New York City.
