|New Certificate of Study in Middle East and Islamic Studies
|| 1 - 2
Penn Law, in collaboration with the Department of Near
Eastern Languages & Civilizations and the Middle East Center,
is now offering a certificate of study in Middle East and Islamic
Studies. Students can either focus on the modern Middle East or
study the region’s ancient and medieval languages and civilizations.
The certificate requires students to take three courses in
Middle Eastern/Islamic studies and one law-related course.
A small, but steady stream of students have been pursuing
the joint study of law and Middle East and Islamic studies
since the early 1980s, which opened up opportunities to
practice law in the Middle East, or work with U.S.-based
firms that do substantive business in the region.
