The Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations encompasses the ancient civilizations of the Near East, Near Eastern Judaica, and the Islamic civilizations of the Middle East, including Egypt and North Africa, and the history, languages, and literatures of the modern Middle East.
The Medieval and Modern fields are: Arabic language and literature, Islamic History and Civilization, Islamic archaeology, Islamic Thought, Modern Hebrew Language and Literature, Pesian Language and Literature, and Turkish Language and Literature.
The department has two main objectives. First, it strives to provide the specific course work and training needed for its own students to develop into outstanding scholars in their chosen fields. Second, it offers more general courses that provide its own students a broader background in areas outside their specific fields. The department also publishes the Journal of Near Eastern Studies, one of the leading academic journals in ancient Near Eastern and Islamic studies.
The Oriental Institute is a research organization and museum devoted to the study of the ancient Near East. Founded in 1919 by James Henry Breasted, the Institute, a part of the University of Chicago, is an internationally recognized pioneer in the archaeology, philology, and history of early Near Eastern civilizations.
