Middle Eastern Studies

The interdisciplinary minor Middle Eastern Studies focuses on the cultures and societies of the contemporary Middle East.

Join the Minors Fair on 9 April

While the Middle East and North Africa have been prominent in media and public debate for decades, the region continues to be presented as an enigma in which modernity cannot hold and where mystery and irrational zealotry rule the day. An academic understanding must always find a way around mysteries and enigmata, and in this minor we will therefore address these head-on, dispelling common misunderstandings and oversimplifications.

The interdisciplinary minor Middle Eastern Studies is focussed on the cultures and societies of the contemporary Middle East. The region is approached from both a humanities and a social science point of view and discusses the Middle East in its cultural, social and political complexity.
