Middle East & Islamic Studies Program

Introduction

The Middle East and Islamic Studies (MEIS) program strives to promote research and education about Islam and the Middle East to the University community. Our philosophy is that one must acquire competency in language, social sciences and the humanities to fully understand and appreciate this region. Therefore, the program employs an interdisciplinary approach by offering courses in Arabic language, anthropology, art history, humanities, history, and political science.
