Course description

Allows Students to gain an in-depth understanding of a large region that is of central importance in the contemporary world.

  • This course takes into account the fact that the study of the Middle East has grown into a multi-disciplinary and cross-cultural academic phenomenon, attracting strong interest for political, cultural and social reasons.
  • It takes on board academic developments in fields such as globalisation, cultural identity, diaspora and migration studies, gender studies, and post-colonial studies - all of which are based on techniques in the analysis of evidence across several Middle Eastern languages, and uses original sources in English translation as well as secondary sources in English.
  • The interplay of disciplines and skills involved in achieving a balanced view of the history, literatures, cultures, and religions of the Middle East is broad and complex. 
  • Modern language courses: Gain competence in reading, writing, speaking and listening comprehension, while developing knowledge and understanding of culture.

  • Language-based thematic courses: Study texts that are the original expression of ideas, which still influence the modern world; be introduced to the literary culture of the languages you are learning.

  • The third year of study is spent at institutions of learning in Turkey, where Students will gain confidence in their language skills and first-hand experience of contemporary life.
