Master of Arts in Near Eastern Studies
Students present a thesis by May 1 of the second year and then take a comprehensive examination. The curriculum is adjustable to the individual needs of students who are considering careers in diplomacy, business, the media, or international public and private agencies related to the Near East.
Students follow the course of study in their department, with certain exceptions. Students in anthropology, politics, religion, or sociology normally take a Near East seminar in their department, a Near East seminar in at least one of the other departments listed above, and a relevant history seminar in the Department of Near Eastern Studies. Students in Near Eastern studies normally take Near East seminars in at least two other departments. These seminars are described in the various departmental announcements.
The Program in Near Eastern Studies also facilitates doctoral courses of study that bridge customary disciplinary or subject boundaries, for example, European and Near Eastern history, international relations with an emphasis on the Near East plus another world area, economic development and comparative politics, or the comparative study of colonialism and empires.
The general examination is conducted by the departments in consultation with the director of the program. The doctoral dissertation is written on a Near Eastern subject. It is the goal of the program that all of its students who write dissertations for which fieldwork in the Near East would be useful shall have a year of such experience.
