Study Abroad Programs: Near Eastern Studies, Middle Eastern Studies

A study abroad program in Near Eastern Studies or Middle Eastern Studies offers a unique opportunity for students to immerse themselves in the rich culture, history, and language of the Middle East. Students will gain a deeper understanding of the region's complex social, political, and economic systems, as well as its religious and philosophical traditions. Coursework typically includes language instruction, cultural studies, history, politics, and international relations.

Programs in Near Eastern Studies or Middle Eastern Studies are available at many universities and institutions around the world. Students can choose from semester-long programs or shorter summer sessions. Many programs offer homestays with local families, as well as field trips to historical and cultural sites. With a focus on experiential learning, students will develop a deeper appreciation for the diversity and complexity of the Middle East, while gaining valuable skills in critical thinking, cross-cultural communication, and global awareness. Reviews from previous participants can help prospective students find the program that best fits their interests and goals.
