The MPhil in Modern Middle Eastern Studies is a two-year course intended for students from all social science and humanities backgrounds. It provides intensive training in a Middle Eastern language, training in research methods and topics relevant to the study of the Middle East. Students who are complete beginners in a Middle Eastern language (Arabic, Hebrew, Persian or Turkish) are accepted. The course also accommodates students in any of these languages at an advanced level. If students already have research-level proficiency in one of these languages, they will be required to take a different language. Students are evaluated in five areas: a language, three written examinations on course options taught through tutorials and lectures, and a 30,000-word thesis.
