Courses must be approved by the faculty of the Middle Eastern Studies Committee for inclusion in the minor. The administrator of the program must approve the course of study for each student who wishes to complete a Middle Eastern Studies minor.
The Middle Eastern Studies Program provides a minor course of study allowing students to concentrate their efforts in the study of the peoples, cultures, history, geography, languages, and religions of the modern Middle East. With the increased emphasis being placed on International Studies, world markets, and diversity awareness, the College of Humanities and Public Affairs has created a minor in Middle Eastern Studies. Students who earn this minor will be better prepared for careers in international business, public service, human resources, and graduate studies in history, political science, public administration, and religious studies.
