CCAS offers a Certificate of Arab Studies at both the graduate and undergraduate level. As part of the undergraduate certificate program, students write and present a capstone research paper in conjunction with the class “Understanding the Arab World,” which is taught by Professor Fida Adely. This year, four seniors completed the Arab Studies Undergraduate Certificate program. They presented their capstone papers on April 1, 2020 in a colloquium that was held online due to the university’s closure. The picture above was taken during the virtual colloquium.  We are pleased to congratulate this year’s cohort on their excellent research projects and presentations:
