About the Program:

The MA in Middle Eastern studies is an interdisciplinary social science master's programme which aims to develop deeper knowledge about the Middle East of today. The programme is taught entirely in English and trains students in critical thinking, gives them the ability to apply this to current events and debates in and about the region. The programme also aims to educate students in social sciences theories and various research methodologies, as well as provide opportunities for the application of methodological skills.

The Middle East is analysed as a historically changeable concept, rather than a delimited geographical region. Particular emphasis is given to the processes, norms and flows that continuously shape the Middle East, such as migration, refugees, legal, political, social and economic conditions as well as cultural and gender constructs.

The programme is based on a close connection to research within the field of Middle Eastern Studies, in which the students are integrated into ongoing research in the field. Besides lectures and seminar-based teaching, the programme has an emphasis on supervision and mentoring, and offering individually designed field studies and applied exercises. During the programme, students conduct independent fieldwork under the supervision and are trained to academically review the work of other students.

After completing the programme, students will acquire a Degree of Master (120 credits) of Arts in Middle Eastern Studies from Lund University in Sweden.
