Middle East Studies

The Middle East Studies Center is part of the School of Global Affairs and Public Policy at The American University in Cairo.

MESC supports research, teaching and outreach across a range of disciplines. MESC administers the BA, Diploma and MA program in Middle East Studies, whose alumni span academia, the private sector, NGOs and government service. Through a variety of curricular and extra-curricular activities, we aim to build on our international reputation and location as a natural hub for Middle Eastern studies.

Our organization and participation in conferences, lectures, and workshops serve to present ground breaking research on anthropology, religion, history, political science, economics, gender, law and literature.
