Center for Middle Eastern Studies

 


The Center for Middle Eastern Studies, established in 1960, offers some 300 Middle East language and area studies courses each year. The Center provides a supportive environment for faculty researching and teaching on the Middle East throughout the University, which are carried out by 150 scholars with faculty appointments in 22 departments. The Center offers an interdisciplinary program in Middle Eastern Studies at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. 
The stature of its faculty and the quality of its events, educational outreach, and publication programs have brought the Center national and international recognition in the field of Middle Eastern Studies.

The Center for Middle Eastern Studies at the University of Texas at Austin is a National Resource Center. Grants awarded under the NRC Program enable institutions of higher education (IHEs) or consortia of IHEs to establish, strengthen, or operate comprehensive or undergraduate centers that will be national resources for modern foreign language training in combination with research and training in area studies, international studies, or the international aspects of professional studies. FLAS grants provide allocations of fellowships to IHEs to assist meritorious students enrolled in performance-based language training and area studies, international studies, or the international aspects of professional studies. You can learn more about the priorties of our grant here.
