The Department welcomes students of all academic backgrounds who wish to learn about the Near and Middle East. NMC101H1, NMC102H1 and NMC104H1 introduce students to the ancient Near East, including ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, and Israel, while NMC103H1 introduces students to the Islamic world. Students pursuing a Specialist or Major program are required to take two of these Gateway courses.
Many courses offered in the Department do not require any knowledge of the languages of the region. However, the Department strongly believes that a deeper understanding of the civilizations and cultures of the Near and Middle East can be achieved through the study of one or more of its languages. In fact, admission to a graduate program in NMC requires the applicant to have acquired a background in languages.
