Center for Middle Eastern Studies - MPP/AM

The Harris School and the Center for Middle Eastern Studies at the University of Chicago offer students an opportunity to earn both a MPP and a AM degree. Upon completion, students graduate with both a Master of Public Policy from the Harris School and a Master of Arts in Middle Eastern Studies from the University of Chicago. This joint degree program addresses the needs of students wishing to acquire a solid background in modern Middle Eastern languages, history, and civilization while developing their abilities in policy analysis in preparation for professional careers in scholarly, educational, governmental, non-governmental, and business environments in the United States and abroad. This program requires 14 courses to complete the requirements in Middle Eastern Studies and 13 courses to complete the public policy degree requirements. Students who wish to participate in this program must be admitted to both the Harris School and the Center for Middle Eastern Studies. A student who is already enrolled in one of the programs may apply during their first year for admission to the other school.
