Admissions and Application
Our program is designed for graduates of accredited institutions of higher education. We strongly believe in an interdisciplinary approach and therefore accept any undergraduate fields or majors. Thus, there are no academic prerequisites for this program. The first semester will provide for a comprehensive, historical overview of selected topics and major trends in Middle Eastern History (19th-20th centuries).
