M.A. Middle Eastern Politics and Economics

The interdisciplinary master’s program “Middle Eastern Politics and Economics” combines modules from the disciplines of political science, economics, and Middle Eastern studies. This combination of disciplines is unique in Germany. The focus is on the interdisciplinary analysis and contextualisation of various developments and transformation processes in countries of the Middle East and Northern Africa. Here, these dynamics are put into historical, cultural, and economic contexts. The regional knowledge is being complemented through courses in one of the most common languages in the region – Arabic, Persian, or Turkish.

The program “Politics and Economics of the Near and Middle East” is only offered in German. Further information can be found in German on the program's homepage.
