Middle Eastern Studies

The Middle Eastern studies minor at Nazareth College is a program of intensive study of the region that stretches from Morocco in the west to Turkey in the north, to Afghanistan in the east and to Yemen in the south. Students develop an interdisciplinary understanding of the Middle East by learning about the religions, literatures, history, and politics of the region. The program includes the option of studying a language of the region.
