Institute for Middle East Studies

Student Research

In their final semester, students participate in a three credit capstone course that allows them to apply their substantive and theoretical knowledge of the Middle East to a current policy problem. Working under the guidance of a Middle East Studies faculty member, students use their research, writing, presentation and teamwork skills to produce a policy-based research paper.

To view the papers you must have Adobe Reader installed on your computer. Download the free software.
