The Center for Middle Eastern Studies) at the University of California, Berkeley was founded in 1963. The Center for Middle Eastern Studies facilitates the interdisciplinary study of the Middle East while recognizing the interconnectedness of its peoples and cultures to the wider global context in which it exists. The University programming encompasses the Arab World, Turkey, Israel, and Iran, yet no single country, topic, academic discipline, or political position dominates the landscape of Middle Eastern Studies at Berkeley. The Center is equally engaged and concerned with issues in contemporary Iran as with medieval Persian literature; with the impact of structural adjustments in Egypt and Turkey as with the history of the Ottoman Empire.
The Department of Near Eastern Studies is concerned with the languages, literatures, and civilizations of the ancient, medieval, and modern Near East. The Department offers specialized training in Archaeology, Art History, Assyriology, Egyptology, Iranian Studies, Judaic and Islamic Studies, Comparative Semitics, Turkish, Hebrew, Arabic and Persian.
