Welcome to CCAS
The Master of Arts in Arab Studies (MAAS) offers a comprehensive interdisciplinary study of the region.
CCAS hosts a rich calendar of public lectures, film screenings, and cultural events.
Congratulations to the winners of the Exodus Institute “Welcoming Immigrants to America” video contest, including MAAS students Nour Laswi (1st place) and Saúl Ulloa (Runner Up)!
Last fall, Congress enacted a law that indirectly led to 29 young Arab leaders losing their scholarships to U.S.-accredited universities and dealt another blow to educational and cultural-exchange programming, a critical part of U.S. public diplomacy efforts.
CCAS Adjunct Associate Professor Noureddine Jebnoun recently published “Public Space Security and Contentious Politics of Morocco’s Rif Protests” in the journal Middle Eastern Studies.
A certificate program at the School of Foreign Service offers theoretical knowledge and practical training for aspiring diplomats.
Congratulations to students who completed the Undergraduate Arab Studies Certificate at CCAS and presented their research at this week’s colloquium!
