Minor in Middle Eastern Studies

A minor in Middle Eastern Studies requires 18 semester credit hours in the interdisciplinary field of Middle Eastern Studies. 

Students are required to take any two courses from lines 4, 5, or 6 listed for the AMES concentration, Middle Eastern Studies track as listed in the catalog (on this website, they correspond to the mandatory foundational courses a, b, or c for the Middle Eastern Studies track). No more than 50 percent of the credit hours can be taken in any one academic department, and at least 9 of the 18 semester credit hours should be taken at the 300-400 level. 

Courses taken while participating in William and Mary’s approved study-abroad programs can count toward the minor. Minors are encouraged to take AMES 250. Courses for this minor can be selected from the courses that are specific to Middle Eastern Studies.
