Dear Students, Colleagues, and Visitors:
This is a special year at CCAS, one we are calling our 40/45 to commemorate the founding of CCAS 45 years ago and our MA in Arab Studies program 40 years ago.
CCAS is a proud part of Georgetown University’s Walsh School of Foreign Service, the oldest school of international affairs in the United States. CCAS’s mission is to educate people about the diversity, histories, cultures, politics, and economies of the Arab world. We do that primarily through our Master of Arts in Arab Studies (MAAS) and certificate programs in Arab Studies at the undergraduate and graduate level. Our dedicated faculty provide the academic learning, research, and language instruction necessary for our students to develop expertise on contemporary issues facing the Arab world and to keep pace with both the exciting and difficult changes in the region.
We also have active education outreach and public events programming and they are featured on our webpages, newsmagazine and on social media. As a Department of Education Title VI National Resource Center on the Middle East and North Africa, CCAS reaches beyond the Georgetown community to develop programming and tools for K-14 educators to help them convey an accurate and fact-based understanding of the Middle East in classrooms.
You can be part of this momentous year by coming to our events, reading our newsmagazine, watching our YouTube channel, or following us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. You’ll see all the ways we are celebrating our 40/45! أهلاَ و سهلاَ
Associate Professor of Anthropology
