The Middle East Studies (MEST) Program offers a combined-major in Middle East Studies. Many MEST students choose to co-major in a department that houses affiliated faculty, such as Anthropology, Geography, History, International Studies, or Political Science, though any major can be combined with Middle East Studies to add a regional focus to your academic program. The MEST Program also offers a Minor in Middle East Studies.
