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.
Please join us on October 23 at 6:30 pm to learn more about the M.A. in Arab Studies program within Georgetown’s School of Foreign Service and to speak with our faculty and current students.
In this article for the European Council on Foreign Relations, Chloe Teevan (MAAS ’16) argues that EU migration policy is increasingly legitimizing regimes with human rights abuses while helping to prop up a failing socioeconomic order in North African countries.
MAAS student Abrar Alshammari writes for ArabLit about book banning and the literary resistance in Kuwait.
“Tunisia’s National Intelligence makes a useful contribution to debates about security sector reform and demonstrates the powerful legacy of authoritarian rule in Tunisia,” writes the reviewer.
CCAS is proud to announce that have been awarded a 4-year grant to be a National Resource Center on the Middle East and North Africa (NRC-MENA) through the U.S. Department of Education’s Title VI program.
