New Offices!!!

The Middle East and Islamic Studies program is happy to announce its new offices in Stevenson Hall! The two offices opened last fall and they are full of information about the Middle East and Islamic Studies program at UofL. The offices are located on the third floor of Stevenson Hall in rooms 310 and 311. They are excellent for studying or just relaxing during a busy school day. If you have any question about the program they will be an excellent place to visit and talk to other students from the program!
