Undergraduate Programs

CMENAS offers an undergraduate major and a minor in Modern Middle Eastern and North African Studies through the University of Michigan College of Literature, Science and the Arts. The MENAS major is an interdisciplinary program designed to give students a broad background of the region including history, language and culture. The faculty and courses are from departments within the College of Literature, Science and the Arts, and it is the combination and coordination between them that provides a wide base of knowledge of the past and present issues involving the region.

For students needing to meet with an academic advisor (including undergraduate students needing to declare the MENAS major or minor), please contact the MENAS student advisor.
