“When I was choosing my undergraduate program, I wanted a degree that offered the opportunity for specialisation, without limiting my studies to only one field. I chose the Bachelor of Middle Eastern and Central Asian Studies, as it allowed me to pursue courses in a number of disciplines, while focusing my core studies on a significant and incredibly diverse geopolitical region.
I have always been interested in Middle Eastern affairs and the degree’s flexible yet strategic approach really appealed to me over a standard undergraduate degree. Courses like ‘Politics in Central Asia’ and ‘Islam: History and Institutions’ have helped me to develop a comprehensive understanding of the complex dynamics that influence the region.
The degree allows for the creation of a tailored program and accommodates a wide range of study spanning political science, sociocultural, economic, history and business interests.
I’ve also chosen to complete a major in Modern Standard Arabic, which is often challenging but incredibly rewarding! Learning to master a language that is spoken by over 250 million people in 27 countries, and is one of the six official languages of the United Nations will help to open doors upon graduation.”
