Middle Eastern Studies

The Middle Eastern Studies Program focuses on the study of the area from Morocco to Afghanistan from antiquity to the present day. A steering committee from Bryn Mawr College co-ordinates courses and works with colleagues from Haverford and Swarthmore College on tri-college curricular planning. Here, on our Web site, we will provide information about the ways Bryn Mawr students can investigate the history, politics and cultures of the Middle East through coursework, independent study, and events here and at neighboring institutions.

The members of the Middle Eastern Studies Initiative Steering Committee can help students who are interested in Middle Eastern topics plan coursework and independent study.
