Those interested in pursuing careers in the fields of journalism, diplomacy, government, think tank research, advocacy/activism, and academia, will find an unparalleled opportunity to acquire an in-depth understanding of the political, social and economic dimensions of the Middle East, from within. This program equips its graduates with the analytical tools and knowledge base to eventually become experts on a region whose geo-political developments regularly affect the state of global affairs.
