Middle East Studies Minor

Middle East studies (MES) focuses on the area stretching from Morocco in the west to Oman in the east, Iran and Turkey in the north to Sudan in the south. The history and art of this region contributed to Western civilization and the area today is central to issues of global peace and prosperity.

Program Overview

The MES minor introduces students to the heritage, problems, and perspectives of Middle Eastern cultures within and beyond borders. Michigan, for example, is home to the nation's largest Arab American community. Study abroad also available.
