All courses organized by CMES focus not only on exposing students to the required literature and issues but put a tremendous effort in increasing students perceptions and critical thinking on a region that is widely misunderstood. This is reflected in the subjects we teach, the instructors, course structure and assignments.
Most of our courses are given within the framework of the CMES’ MA-program in Middle Eastern Studies, but are also offered to any student aspiring a deeper understanding of the political, social, cultural, economic and religious developments of the contemporary Middle East.
During Spring 2014 CMES is offering courses in methodology, politics and international relations as well as religion and culture in the Middle East. The full list of courses is available here.
Classes are conducted in English. Information about the courses and application procedure is only available in Swedish at the moment. For non-Swedish speakers, please contact Director of Studies Torsten Janson or Academic Advisor Frida Mebius Önnerfors.
