Middle East Studies
Middle East Studies (MES) is an interdisciplinary concentration that draws upon courses offered in the departments of Anthropology, Classics, Comparative Literature, Egyptology, History, History of Art and Architecture, Judaic Studies, Old World Archaeology, Religious Studies and Political Science. The Middle East is cradle of the three major monotheistic religions of the world and, for centuries it has been one of the most ethnically and religiously mixed regions of the world. The Middle East is an ideal site for considering the diversity and complexity of human interactions, along with the continuities and disruptions that such interactions involve in the long course of history. MES concentrators are thus uniquely poised to make significant contributions to an understanding of a broad range of contemporary problems that affect our world.
Here's what concentrators from the class of 2012 reported they were doing in their first year after graduation.
