Middle East Studies Minor announced

The College of Liberal Arts announces the approval of a new Interdisciplinary minor in Middle East Studies effective Fall 2012.  The 18-credit minor will be supported by several departments within the College and will provide a firm multidisciplinary grounding in the region, its history and culture, and its international relations. The Middle East Studies minor will respond to an increasing demand for a stimulating educational environment to examine the transformation of this region and its peoples in a global context as well as its relevance for US domestic and international policy. In doing so, it will prepare students for expanding job opportunities in related fields. 

The program will be housed in one of the participating departments on a rotating basis. It will be housed in the History Department for the first five years, with oversight provided by the Middle East Studies Advisory Board .  Students interested in pursuing the minor should contact Dr. Safa Saracoglu  or Mrs. Nawal Bonomo.
