Master of Arts in
Middle Eastern & North African Studies
About the Program
The MA program in Middle Eastern and North African Studies at the University of Arizona offers a rigorous interdisciplinary curriculum that allows students to engage in critical examination of contemporary ideas and methodologies in the field. It allows students to explore gender and society in the Middle East, history and literature of the Middle East, linguistics of Middle Eastern languages, and Islamic Studies.
Our graduates go on to positions in government, NGOs, academia, journalism, military, business and teaching.
Thanks to a generous gift from the Nofal Family Foundation, MENAS offers financial support to incoming MA students in their first year.
