About Middle East Studies

About Middle East Studies

The Middle East Studies program is designed for students who wish to pursue an interdisciplinary program of study focusing on the Middle East since the rise of Islam. Courses offered include language, history, religion and philosophy, political science, and anthropology. From these are drawn combinations which make up the Major and Minor concentrations, Honours, and Joint Honours in Middle East Studies.

Students wishing to pursue a program in Middle East Studies must consult a program adviser each year to devise a suitable program. Before doing so, students should consult the Middle East Studies’ website at www.mcgill.ca/mes for a full description of each program. Failure to consult an adviser could lead to a delay in completing program requirements. Students wishing to have courses taken at other universities counted as satisfying program requirements must bring copies of their transcripts and course syllabi to the Program Adviser.
