Greetings MES Students! Welcome back.
While the semester is just getting underway, it's already time to think about the spring. We have a number of courses on offer that will help you complete the MES concentration requirements. For Foundational Courses: ANTH 1151 may be petitioned to count for MES 0155, Prof. Meltem Toksoz will teach a history course, and Prof. Abed Azzam will be teaching a course in religion. Keep an eye out for the specific course listings!
In addition, my course MES 1999E DISPLACEMENT AND REFUGEES IN THE MIDDLE EAST is now taking applications! Please see the website for more details!
Finally, don't forget to take advantage of the great opportunities that MES has this semester. Whether you're applying for research travel awards or looking to participate in DUG events, or planning to come join in our many events, MES has many important opportunities for you! Check them out!
