Master's Studies

MA in Middle Eastern Studies, 120.0 credits

Our two year master’s programme draws on the interdisciplinary contemporary research conducted at the Center for Middle Eastern Studies (CMES). As a hub for research on the MENA region; Europe as well as South and Central Asia, CMES hosts researchers from Social sciences; Humanities; Science and Engineering. The main research areas are democratization and social development; migration, multicultural societies and minorities; environment and sustainable development along with religion, processes of interpretation and identity formation. Collaborating with researchers in a number of countries in the MENA region as well as South, Southwest and Central Asia also informs our research and teaching with a critical awareness of contemporary research in the region. Most CMES researchers combine research with teaching and teachers are engaged in research in a variety of ways.
