Center for Middle East Studies


Among its mission priorities, the Center for Middle East Studies seeks to provide DU students with the tools and resources necessary to engage the Middle Eastern world both professionally and intellectually. Towards that end, we have compiled a wide variety of online resources students can easily access - from the best academic journals to upcoming intensive language training programs outside DU.
