Area Concentrations and Specializations

The Asian and Middle Eastern Studies Program (AMES) offers various areas of study. In constructing a major in one of our areas of concentration, please click on the relevant link below and consult the worksheet and list of approved courses for that concentration. The major in AMES requires a minimum of ten courses. Normally all ten courses will be in the student's area of concentration. A student who wishes to combine courses from more than one area must provide a written rationale for approval by the advisor and the AMES Chair.
