Our master’s program in the Political History of the Middle East is a two-year academic program designed for students who wish to develop their academic interests and to pursue professional careers in the field of Middle Eastern Studies and in the modern history of the regional countries. A firm grounding in theories of international relations is emphasized, however, we also encourage an interdisciplinary approach, and offer courses in the political history of the Middle East and Islamic countries in the 19th and 10th centuries, Middle East in international relations, intellectual and social and political movements in the modern Middle East and Islamic countries, modern intellectual history of Islam.

After two semesters of course work, students are required to write a thesis bases on original research. Graduates of the program can pursue academic, business, or media& journalism careers and can be employed in private or government sectors, NGOs, policy-making and research institutions.
