The Department of Middle Eastern Languages and Cultures currently has four tracks from which MA students may choose:
- a terminal master’s degree for students who do not intend to pursue the Ph.D., which requires only a single major Middle Eastern language;
- a track for those who do intend to pursue the Ph.D., which requires a major and a minor Middle Eastern language;
- a track for those who wish to complete an MA in Egyptology, which has special requirements
- a separate dual Master’s degree, through which students earn a Master of Arts degree in MELC and a Master of Public Policy (M.P.A.) in the School of Public and Environmental Affairs (SPEA).
In addition, students can earn a dual MA degree with other departments of the COLL Graduate Division. Students must apply to both programs and be accepted to pursue the Dual Master’s Degree.
