Instruction in the Department of Near Eastern Studies is concerned with the languages, literatures, and civilizations of the ancient, medieval, and modern Near East. The Department offers specialized training in Archaeology, Art History, Assyriology, Egyptology, Hittitology, Iranian Studies, and Islamic Studies, Comparative Semitics, Turkish, Arabic and Persian. For students from other disciplines, the Department offers a wide variety of courses to supplement such related fields as classics, linguistics, history, political science, comparative literature, anthropology, and art history. The Department strongly recommends that its own graduate students take advantage of courses in these fields, provided that they are relevant to their fields of study. Credit for such courses will be recognized by the Department, subject to approval of the Adviser.
Many of the Department's courses are restricted to a small number of students, thus affording an opportunity for close contact with the instructing staff. Apart from providing instruction in the languages and literatures, the lecture courses offer a comprehensive body of information on past and present Near Eastern civilizations.
