Minor in Middle Eastern Studies

Minor in Middle Eastern Studies

UALR Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies Program is a multidisciplinary program endowed by the University of Arkansas King Fahd Fund for Middle Eastern Studies. The Program’s chief goal is to foster knowledge of the Middle East and of the Islamic world among the UALR campus community and the community of Little Rock and the state of Arkansas. The Program has a dedicated group of faculty specializing in the Middle East. Academically, the UALR Middle Eastern Studies Program offers a series of courses on the Middle East and is centered on an academic minor in Middle Eastern Studies.

The Program also conducts frequent events (lectures, conferences, films, etc.) on the Middle East aimed at the academic community and the general public. Because of the generous endowment, the Program is able to distribute grant monies among UALR faculty and students interested in pursuing specific scholarly endeavors. The UALR Ottenheimer Library has a large and growing collection of books, periodicals, and other sources on the Middle East. The Program also funds UALR student participation in the Model Arab League and other simulation programs. The King Fahd Center for Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies at University of Arkansas at Fayetteville works closely with the Middle Eastern Studies Program at UALR.
