Religion and Politics in the Middle East

Located at the crossroads of three continents, the Middle East is one of the most intensely discussed regions in the world. Spend six days in an intensive study program, learning about the many dimensions of religion and politics in the Middle East. Work with Yale faculty and others, and connect with local colleagues who share your interest in the region. In addition to lectures and discussions, the seminar will include cuisine and films from the Middle East as well as field trips designed to familiarize you and your students with local resources.
