Arab World Studies Program is purposefully housed in the College of Arts and
Sciences and is a founding member of the Critical Race, Gender, and Culture
Studies Collaborative (CRGC). These relationships allow us to offer a comprehensive
view of the Arab world, taking into consideration the organization of everyday
life, literature, film, religion, gender, religion, and history of the region
as topics of interest in their own right.
Arab World Studies draws from a wide spectrum of experts and
courses across the University, affording students the opportunity to learn with
both breadth and depth. We benefit from the expertise on the region available
across AU’s campus starting with CAS, but also including relationships with
faculty from the School of International Service, the School of Public Affairs,
the School of Communications, and the Kogod School of Business.
We invite you to learn with us about the diverse
and dynamic Arab world in a spirit of collegiality and generous inquiry.
