About

The Middle East and North African Studies Program (MENA) at Northwestern University offers interdisciplinary approaches to one of the most dynamic regions in the world—stretching from Morocco in the west to Iran and the Gulf States in the east, the Mediterranean in the north and into Saharan Africa and the Sudan in the south. MENA provides education in languages (Arabic, Persian and Turkish), histories, literatures and sociocultural specificities of this diverse area, while examining its global affiliations.
