Format: Campus

Program Description:

The Department of Near and Middle Eastern Civilizations is concerned with the interdisciplinary study of the civilizations and cultures of the Near and Middle East from neolithic times until present, including their languages and literatures (Akkadian [Assyro-Babylonian], Arabic, Aramaic and its closely-related dialect Syriac, ancient Egyptian, Greek [Hellenistic], Hebrew [biblical, rabbinic, mediaeval and modern], Persian and Turkish), archaeology, history, art and material culture. The Department's programmes are conceived in the broad tradition of the humanities and provide an opportunity to study non-western complex societies and civilizations. An understanding of these societies will reveal the ultimate roots and historical development of western civilizations.
