Program Description

Over the duration of three back-to-back semesters, students who participate in the Master of Arts in Middle Eastern Studies (MAMES) program become immersed in the history and current affairs of the modern Middle East. Those who are interested in pursuing careers pertaining to the Middle East in the fields of journalism, diplomacy, government, think tank research, advocacy/activism, and academia will find an unparalleled opportunity to acquire an in-depth understanding of the political, social and economic dimensions of the region from within. This program will equip its graduates with the analytical tools and knowledge base to eventually become experts on a region whose geo-political developments regularly affect the state of global affairs. Students who complete the program are awarded an M.A. degree in Middle Eastern History from Tel Aviv University's prestigious department of Middle Eastern and African History. 
 
Graduate seminars in the MAMES program are taught by the TAU Department of Middle Eastern and African History's senior faculty and Ph.D. candidates - world-class experts and upcoming authorities in their fields. The MAMES program offers a well-rounded and thorough curriculum, including seminars and intensive language studies. Students are required to complete three core seminars and six elective seminars over the duration of three semesters. Prior to the first semester, students learn Hebrew in an intensive seven-week course, with the option to continue in the fall and spring semesters; a combination of spoken and classical Arabic language courses are mandatory for all three semesters of the program. There is no thesis-requirement for the MAMES program, however, students who would like to continue onto a Ph.D. program are able to complete a thesis project under the supervision of a member of the faculty. 
 
The program also includes a strong extracurricular component. Film and lecture series; field trips to the Arab-Israeli city of Umm al-Fahem and Petra, Jordan; and a study tour to a neighboring country (such as Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco, or Turkey), accompanied by expert researchers, will enhance the students' knowledge and ability to understand and analyze the complexities of a region transitioning through a period of profound change.
