Middle Eastern Studies is an interdisciplinary, liberal arts major offered by the Asian Studies Program that allows students to develop a broad knowledge of the societies, languages, cultures, and histories of the Middle East and their connections to the wider world. Courses draw on the expertise of faculty from a wide variety of departments, including anthropology, history, literature, music, politics, and religious studies. Students take a wide variety of subjects in their courses and are encouraged to develop complementary skills in another field, such as anthropology, history, literature, politics, international relations, and religion. In addition to serving as a focus of a broad liberal arts education, the major and minor in Middle Eastern Studies equip students to take up careers in international affairs, public policy, law, economics, journalism, scholarship, and the arts.

The Middle Eastern Studies major and minor are offered by the Asian Studies Program.
