The Master's Programme in Middle Eastern Studies is an interdisciplinary program that provides in-depth knowledge of the Middle Eastern and North African societies, as well as area studies as an academic discipline. The program has two study paths; Arabic and Area studies.
Study path 1 (Arabic) is intended for students who have already studied Arabic, and provides additional training in the Arabic language by developing the student’s ability to process and use Arabic source material in scientific analysis.
Study path 2 (Area Studies) is intended for students who have not studied Arabic or who wish to focus on regional studies, and provides advanced studies of the societies of the Middle East and North Africa.
The program’s joint courses covers both area studies in general and studies of the Middle East and North Africa in particular, as well as scientific methodology and academic writing. The program also gives the student the opportunity of choosing a number of courses in other main fields.
Within the programme there is the possibility of doing an internship, field studies, as well as studies abroad in that the student can choose to study the elective courses in the third semester at a university in the Middle East and North Africa.
The program prepares the students for work in business, management, international organizations, research and development projects, as well as media and journalism, where an extensive knowledge of the Middle East and North Africa and/or good knowledge of the Arabic language is required. The program will also provide eligibility for studies on the PHD level. The language of instruction is English.
