These course lists have been compiled by Center staff to aid students in registering for courses related to Middle East and Islamic Studies.
Each semester’s course list includes:
Modern Middle East: Many of these courses can count for the Concentration in Middle East Studies (Global Studies) or the Concentration in Arab Cultures (Asian Studies). Some courses do not have sufficient Middle East content to count for majors, but they can be useful for placing the modern Middle East in larger contexts. Language courses relevant to the modern Middle East include Arabic, Hebrew, Persian, Turkish, and Urdu.
Pre-modern Middle East: Courses about the Middle East in ancient and medieval times, as well as courses in ancient Near Eastern languages such as biblical Hebrew and Coptic.
Muslim civilizations outside the Middle East: Courses Africa, Europe, South Asia, Southeast Asia, etc. Look for language courses in Bengali, Hindi-Urdu, Serbo-Croatian, and Swahili.
