Student Voices

“My Middle East Studies concentration has provided me with some of the most fascinating and compelling coursework on UT’s campus, and my Arabic classes greatly enriched my understanding of the world and gave me direction. This program has led me on some of the most fantastical adventures of my life in Oman, Saudi Arabia, and Dubai, and ultimately as a 2017 Boren Scholar in Jordan. I cannot imagine my college experience without the Middle East Studies program.” – Lucy Greer (’18)

“The UT Political Science and Middle Eastern Studies courses and professors have really inspired me to continue learning even after I've graduated and will always be grateful for my time at UT.” – Sara Hamrawi (’19)
