We offer a Graduate Certificate in Middle East Studies. The online graduate certificate is designed to provide students with a comprehensive overview of the history, civilizations, religions, politics, and economic factors that shape the political landscape of this dynamic and often volatile region. The program attracts individuals seeking a deeper understanding of the Middle East, particularly those professionals affiliated with U.S. intelligence communities, political science studies, international business, foreign affairs, education, and more.
Students learn to assess the destabilizing forces in the Middle East, while also examining the wide-reaching influences of U.S. and Central Asia foreign policies. The curriculum evaluates the impact and seminal events of the Arab-Israeli Conflict and explores the fundamentals of Islam and how they influence cross-cultural perceptions, politics, and diplomacy.
Students interact online and learn from practitioner instructors. Many are experts in their field and bring relevant experience into the classroom. The classes are facilitated entirely online, offering working adult learners the ability to fit a quality graduate education into their busy lives.
