  1. Greetings, Long-time lurker, first-time poster. I figured it might be worthwhile to get a reality check from some of my peers on here, as you all would know better than many of the real-world people I know about the MES world and what their admissions processes look like. I could really use some perspective and context about this matter, so some feedback would be greatly appreciated. I am in an unconventional situation where: a) I am adamant about transitioning into academia/the humanities to study the Middle East with a focus on the intellectual history of the Levant and
  2. Hi, first time posting Came across mention of a GradCafe on UK-based The Students Room. I've applied for MA History, SOAS and MSc Islamic Studies & History, Oxford and (soon) MSc in Empires, Colonialism, and Globalisation, LSE. I am also a SOAS graduate in BA Arabic from ten years back but still use their library as an alumnus frequently. Then seeing the word "Fall" when signing up, I recognised this is a US-based forum (and consequently there is a red line under "recognised" as I write). In any case some good general info here on research, academia and the like. Good t
  3. Can we create a list of MA and PhD Islamic Studies programs by commenting your own schools here or links for general information? I am a current MA student at Rutgers University in the Islamic Studies program. Link: http://religion.rutgers.edu/graduate/program-information Rutgers MA program is good because it allows you for a year of exchange study at Princeton University.
  4. So I am currently a rising senior contemplating my post-graduate plans. I'm still very much in the academic mind set and I am very intent upon continuing with my foreign language as soon as I graduate. In my estimations I should go straight to graduate school to build upon my schooling and continue with Arabic as soon as possible (so as to not get rusty). However, many of the more professional schools (like one of my top choices, SAIS), only admits a small amount of students straight from undergrad. The admissions office from SAIS specifically told me they admit 10% with no work experience.
  5. Hi everyone, I see that Middle East and North African studies are kind of scattered throughout the forum, and not many people have started threads about contemporary studies. I'm very interested in Georgetown's program, and I've seen that a lot of people on here have applied and been accepted. I would be interested in seeing what it takes to get into the program with full funding, and so I'm starting this thread. Hopefully this can serve as a reference point for future applicants of this and other, comparable programs. Please type your info and stats below. Thanks and good luck! !بال
  6. I have been under the impression that it is difficult to get funding for masters programs. I am not entirely sure how accurate this is so I wanted to shout out to you guys and get thoughts. Top schools I'm considering: Johns Hopkins Georgetown NYU UVA UT Austin Does anyone have experience with these schools in particular or know about their reputation? Furthermore, are there strong schools that offer large amounts of aid that anyone knows of? Thanks!
  7. So I am currently in the process of looking for graduate schools to apply for. Money is definitely a factor for me and, although I want to go to a prestigious and academically rigorous program, I very much need financial aid. What is the likelihood of receiving funding for a MA program? Is there a secret to working the system or finding out which schools consistently give either merit or financial aid based aid? So far all I see on website are vague references to subjective amounts of funds given to students with their acceptance letters. For me, personally, a school that has a higher like
  8. Hello, I received an admission letter from University of Michigan today(2/21) for their M.A. program in Modern Middle Eastern and North African Studies. I am awaiting results from 7 other universities that I applied to, while I got rejected from UT Austin on 9 Feb 2012. I have been compiling the following list of NE/ME Studies programs since last October. You will find most of the information for your application process, such as required documents, application fee, ETS code, website links, SOP length and questions, topics for the writing sample, etc. I believe this will save you lots of
  9. I am interested in pursuing a master's degree in Middle Eastern Studies in Fall 2012, but I'm wondering if A. I am qualified to do so right out of college or if I really need to take a break to gain some experience, B. if I should seek to pursue the MA in the U.S. or in the Middle East, and C. which schools I should consider. Here's a little about myself: I am going into my final year of undergrad joint-majoring in Anthropology and Human Rights with a concentration in Middle Eastern Studies. I spent the summer of 2010 interning at an NGO in Beirut and last semester studying abroad at the
  10. Hi all, I'm looking for a Poli Sci PhD program that includes studying a foreign language. I'm interested in studying politics of the Middle East (not interested in Middle East Studies degree), and thus continuing my study of Arabic; I'm currently in intermediate Arabic. Of course there are options like studying on my own time, but I would prefer a curriculum that includes language study. Do any programs exist that encourage students to become fluent within their curriculum, as opposed to simply taking two years of language study (like many of the UCs in California) to clear language requi
